About Me

I am a committed and experienced education abroad professional. I enjoy the variety and challenge this profession offers--from advising students on study abroad programs,  to helping a faculty member implement their programmatic vision, to responding to emergencies abroad,  to writing copy for promotional publications, there is never a dull moment.

I have worked at Carleton since 2006 and previously worked in study abroad at the University of Minnesota and the University of Wisconsin-Madison and in K-12 language and culture education at Concordia Language Villages and in US and French high schools. I love the international dimension of this work and am committed to student growth and development through international/intercultural education.
