I joined the AIFS team in March 2008 and became an Admissions Officer in 2014. Prior to that, I was the AIFS Alumni Relations Coordinator, and in this role I trained and worked with the AIFS Alumni Ambassadors, as well as organized alumni-related events and collaborated with the entire AIFS alumni network to help promote and market AIFS programs to college students. I enjoy working with AIFS students as an Admissions Officer, as it allows me to relive my international experiences. I have a passion for cultural integration and enjoy traveling whenever possible!

Your Admissions Officer is available to guide you through the admissions process and answer any questions you have about studying abroad on this program.
