Study abroad had such a huge impact on my life, and I love sharing that enthusiasm with others. I find so much joy in helping students find the right program for them.


I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Bradley University with a B.A. in Journalism and Spanish and a minor in Leadership Studies.

Travel Experience

Studying abroad for a semester in Granada, Spain showed me what a truly immersive international experience is like. Before then, I traveled a lot but just scratched the surface of tourist locations. Living with a host family, speaking the language, and being integrated into the university and community taught me to travel in a much more authentic way.

Did You Know?

I once bought a 10 cent goldfish that lived to be 20 years old.
