Prior to receiving my undergraduate degree in Political Science at the University of Nebraska, I studied abroad in the Czech Republic and in Greece. When I returned to the U.S., I continued studying the Czech language as a way to connect with my Czech heritage. After graduating from UNL, I taught English abroad for several years, primarily in Japan, but also in India and Europe. I returned to Nebraska in 2011 to pursue my Masters degree in Student Affairs. During this time, I worked in education abroad at UNL and Nebraska Wesleyan. I joined the KSU education abroad team in February 2014. I truly enjoy working with K-State students and to see them have the same kind of transformative and influential study abroad experience that I had. Gaining an international experience opens so many doors for students, so one of my goals is to reveal how accessible education abroad is to all students from all backgrounds.
