¡Hola a todxs! I am an International Programs Manager for Pitt Business and a Western PA native. As an undergraduate students, I had my first experience abroad when my college choir toured the southern region of Spain, and I’ve been hooked ever since. One year after that, I spent a semester at la Universidad de Sevilla in Seville, Spain; which are among the best months of my life. I earned a bachelor’s degree in Spanish from Westminster College and a master’s degree in Higher Education from Penn State (I know, I know). I’m looking forward to helping undergraduate students pursue global education opportunities to further develop their personal, academic, and professional goals.
