Position: Associate Director, Education abroad. I oversee our office’s program management, advising services, and office management. I facilitate many aspects of risk management for study abroad. I work to ensure successful student experiences by making sure all of the nuts and bolts are in place in terms of process.
Education: BS in Journalism (at OU) and MA in Spanish (also at OU). Go Bobcats!
How long have you been at the OEA: Nine years.
Favorite aspect of work: I love that we facilitate global opportunities for students and they get so much out of these experiences. We have a lot of satisfied customers. We’re helping OHIO students toward a path of global citizenship.
Experiences Abroad: I studied abroad in both Spain and Mexico as a student – both were immersive language programs during which I lived with a host family, which was such a great experience both times.
