I have worked with University of South Carolina students for 5 years, and most recently as a study abroad advisor. I completed my M.Ed. in Higher Education in 2015. My international experiences include study abroad in Denmark, work abroad in South Korea, and travel. I am excited to be attending and presenting at my first NAFSA conference!
