For almost twenty years I have been directing programs in the four most popular locations for U.S. study abroad students (France, Spain, Italy and the UK). I have been lucky enough to live in Paris, Barcelona and Florence but London is my capital city. I was brought up on the outskirts of Manchester in England before leaving to study engineering in the Midlands. During my college years I spent the summer months working with foreign students in rural France and Massachusetts, U.S. It was during my travels I discovered all about the world of studying and working abroad and that led to my career with AIFS. Only two out of every ten American students study abroad, so simply being on this program makes you stand out. Myself and my team will make sure you make the most of your study abroad opportunity and look forward to welcoming you to London.

The Resident Director provides academic advice, introduces you to the community and handles communication with the University.

AIFS Campus Staff with First Aid Training

Because health and safety are top priorities at AIFS, at least one member of the staff at this campus has taken a first aid course in order to be available to help any student until a doctor or nurse can provide help. This is just one of many services that we provide to our students.

Ciao! I grew up in a beautiful medieval town in central Italy, immersed in nature.

I earned my degree in Florence, where I joined AIFS in 1995 as a teacher of Italian L2.

When I moved to Rome in 2001, I immediately felt spellbound to the beauty, the wealth of art and history, the colors, the energy, and the climate of this extraordinary city.

I am passionate about international education and travelling; as a study abroad student myself, and through the many countries I visited, I learned how empowering and transformational learning about different people and cultures can be.

I am committed to providing a study abroad program of intensive engagement with Rome and Italy and I will support and advise you throughout your stay to ensure that you make the most of your Italian experience.
