“I love meeting new people. A huge part of this job is welcoming new students every semester, and making sure they have the support they need to have the best possible study abroad experience. Depending on who you are that support will look different, and that is a challenge we continually work toward, providing equal opportunity for all students, no matter what their needs are.”
