I graduated from Eastern Connecticut State University with a BS in Communications and a minor in Philosophy in 2014. During my junior year I was fortunate enough to spend a semester abroad in Florence, Italy. The entire experience truly changed my perspective on life. After graduating, I decided to travel as much as I could and pursue a career in international education. For the last three years I have worked as a Placement Specialist for AIFS' high school exchange program, Academic Year in America. I am excited to continue my work by helping students get the most out of their study abroad program and bring them the same amazing experience that I had.

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