Program Staff

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.
