I believe that international education is of great importance to the way that we interact with both our global and local communities, and I have had the privilege of seeing students experience this firsthand through multiple settings in the field. After obtaining my BA in Spanish and Economics from Manhattanville College in Westchester County, New York, I worked for an English language school for international students and then for a study abroad office at a university. In 2016, I graduated with my MS in International and Intercultural Education from Florida International University. Today, I am very excited to help students with the application and pre-departure process so that they have an enriching and overall great experience abroad!
