I joined the AIFS team as an Admissions Officer to help students get the most out of their study abroad experience. I am a University of Connecticut graduate with a background in Interpersonal Communication. I have a passion for international education and tourism. I became a travel enthusiast after exploring Southern Ireland. I truly enjoy working with students throughout the admissions process and providing them with the assistance needed to pursue a semester or academic year abroad. When I am not in the office I am spending time with my large Irish family.

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