Advising Leadership

Kayla McGuire
Student Advising & Retention Manager

It has been years and Kayla is still just as in love with Sevilla as the day she stood across the river overlooking the city on her first day.  Her yearlong experience as a student through CEA CAPA transformed her life—now, working for the Enrollment department, she comes to work each day prepared and excited to aid her students in making their experience abroad the best it can be. 

Kayla grew up close to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and earned her bachelor’s degree in Languages and Cultures with a Spanish concentration from West Chester University. While in college, she got the opportunity to study at the Universidad de Sevilla in Seville, Spain through CEA CAPA’s program! She was incredibly lucky to get to visit most of Spain while abroad, as well as Italy, France, Portugal, Africa, and Greece. Travel has remained a constant passion of hers—she's been back to Sevilla every year since she's left, and she hope to explore South America very soon! 

Outside of work, Kayla likes to sing and listen to live music! She reads every day, and spends time with her friends and family as much as she can.

Tristin Collins
Partner Student Advising and Retention Manager

Tristin's main duties include supervision of the Admissions Counselors team and internal review of all incoming applications and processes. In this role, she also has the pleasure of training new staff members, identifying any gaps in enrollment, finding new or creative solutions to challenges, and regularly working with colleagues on cross-departmental projects to get our students abroad as smoothly as possible.

Tristin obtained her bachelor’s degree in Organizational Communication with a minor in Psychology at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. Go Bobcats! She did not study abroad herself, which is why she strongly believes in the importance of taking advantage of this opportunity when it comes to personal growth. Traveling is slowly becoming one of her leading passions in life because of this. Fun Fact: Her first plane ride (and vacation) was to Costa Rica in 2016 to visit two friends who were on an internship abroad program!
