I am originally from a small town in upstate NY approximately an hour south of Montreal. This was my first experience with a different country, a different culture, a different language and this is where my interest in other cultures and languages began. After completing my BS degree in Business Administration, I packed my car, headed west, landed in Santa Barbara and never looked back. 

My UC experience includes assisting students interested in studying abroad in Asia and Africa through the UC Education Abroad Program (as well as assisting international students interested in studying at one of the UC campuses) and advising international students applying to enroll in academic courses through UCSB Professional & Continuing Education's University Immersion Program.

When I am not working, I enjoy running (I try to run 3 miles each morning before work and I have completed 3 marathons) and traveling to different regions of the world to experience different cultures, languages, food, etc.
