Originally from New Hampshire, I received my bachelor's degree from the University of New Hampshire and my master's degree from the University of Bridgeport. As an undergraduate, I studied abroad in Brisbane, Australia, which sparked my passion for international study and travel. After graduating from UNH, I returned to Australia for three months, volunteering for a non-profit in Sydney. Upon my return, I sought a job in international education and joined AIFS in 2006. Outside of work, I enjoy yoga, sewing, and getting back to my New Hampshire roots by spending time outdoors.

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