While earning a BA in Psychology from Taylor University I studied in Ireland for a semester, which ignited my interest in higher education, specifically international education/study abroad. I have five years of experience in higher education administrative work and student recruitment and a year spent in residence life. Most recently, I worked in the Washington, DC office of the CCCU and BestSemester, advising students through the application and pre-departure process for programs in Australia, Oxford, and India, before joining the staff at the Australia Studies Centre in Brisbane, Australia as the Program Coordinator. I’ve recently completed a master’s degree in Education and Human Development from The George Washington University, with a focus on higher education administration
