As a study abroad advisor in International Academic Programs, I manage a portfolio of programs in China, France, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Laos, Taiwan, and Thailand. My love of all things international began in high school with a Spring Break trip to Paris. I attended the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where I received a bachelor’s in international studies and French, and an MBA in international business and marketing. As an undergrad, I studied abroad in France and Morocco, and I also completed a graduate internship in London. Prior to study abroad, I worked in the non-profit industry and the private sector. I am passionate about increasing access to study abroad, particularly to fellow first-gens and students of color. One of my favorite aspects of my job is knowing that students will return from their study abroad experience deeply changed – in the best way. Outside of work, I enjoy being amused by cat videos, reading, watching movies, spending time with family, and, of course, traveling (my unfulfilled travel destination is the Maldives).
