I truly believe that studying abroad is one of the best ways to gain a cultural and global education and self-awareness.

I am a graduate of Ithaca College, where I received a Bachelor's degree in Leisure Services with a focus on sustainable tourism. After studying abroad in London my junior year, I discovered my passion for international education. After graduating, I packed up my car and moved out to California, where I managed international education tours for a small tour operator prior to joining AIFS in 2006. My ten years in educational travel have led me to many areas of the world. Whether you are just starting to consider study abroad or need assistance finalizing what to pack, I am here to help.

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