The tall and short of it:

I’m a 31 y/o Northeastern American with a taste for tortilla and a severe dose of wanderlust. After completing my M.Ed. in International Education, I returned to southern Spain where I studied abroad as an undergrad, and taught English for the Spanish Ministry of Education. Endless joy, living in Europe, making my way around with eyes wide, stomach full and wallet slowly emptying.

I’m bilingual, but not fluent. I’m crazy about food and books, volleyball and photography.

Study abroad is my life: past, present and future. It’s my profession and also my soapbox. Currently working as Associate Director of Study Abroad for a state school in Maryland after 2 years in a study abroad office in the Midwest.
