Buna! That’s hello in Romanian. 
After returning from being a Peace Corp volunteer in Transylvania- I decided to work in the field of international education helping international students.  Life took me back to Buffalo, NY (where I grew up- land of chicken wings)- and I worked for SUNY Buffalo for many years assisting international students and scholars.  In 2010, I moved to the ‘Burgh- and am now assisting engineering students to study abroad. 
For fun I enjoy volunteering with my therapy dog Nora, yoga and fitness, international films, crocheting, and travel (of course).

Come talk with me about studying abroad!

Bonjour! I became the Swanson School’s first Director of International Initiatives in August 2007. In this role I have collaborated with Swanson School faculty members to create international education opportunities for engineering students- including studying abroad, international internships and service learning projects along with other research opportunities abroad. I have also conducted research on learning processes in the context of international education. I studied in Paris, France during my junior year and continue to love visiting countries around the world whenever possible, learning as much as I can about other cultures. I enjoy supporting engineering students and seeing them change from their experiences abroad. 

Come talk with me about studying abroad!

Moriah Lea Mock

I grew up in small-town Central PA and had the wild experience of taking my first plane ride on my way to a year-long Rotary Youth Exchange in Lima, Peru. That gap year, combined with my study abroad experience as a Pitt undergrad in Argentina, sealed my love of Latin America (and empanadas!). Now, as the Pitt Business International Programs Manager, I’m here to help you achieve your own study abroad goals. I proudly call both Pittsburgh and Philly home, and you can find me gardening, soaking in the sun, and eating my way through both cities when I’m not in the office.
