Education Abroad Adviser

As an Education Abroad Adviser at the University of Cincinnati, I advise students in four colleges on both short term and long term programs. Our role is to guide students from program selction through their return. Hosting information sessions, pre-depatures and various events throughout the year allow us to work with students through every step. My background in international education began with a faculty-led program to Ghana. I went on to work and study in Xi'an, Beijing, and Hangzhou for my bachelor's and master's degrees. Starting as a student worker at my own college, I also have had the pleasure of working for a provider and now as an adviser.
