I grew up in a small town in Vermont and attended the University of Vermont, very close to home. Spending a semester in Vienna during my junior year opened my eyes to the world and ignited a passion for travel, languages and cultural exchange that I still have today. I graduated from UVM with a BA in Economics, and then saved all summer so I could backpack around Europe for five weeks with a friend. Shortly after that, I lived and worked in Sweden for a year. I have continued to travel and soak up other cultures and languages whenever I can. I truly believe that studying abroad changed the course of my life and made me who I am today. As an Admissions Officer with AIFS, I am thrilled to be helping students have similarly life-changing experiences abroad!
