Catherine Hernandez, Partner Student Advisor


Catherine was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. She eventually moved to California where she completed her Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology with an academic focus on subcultures and subcommunities. As an undergraduate student, she also studied abroad for a semester in Thailand, where she developed a passion for international travel and intercultural immersion.  

After graduation, she decided to teach English abroad in Taiwan for a year, which quickly turned into five years of living abroad in Asia. During this time, she also received her Master’s degree in International Education Leadership from Northern Arizona University. In her past work as an Admissions Manager for a global internship provider, Catherine supported students in reaching their global citizenship and professional development goals. She is passionate about encouraging students to immerse themselves in new cultures and get out of their comfort zones. 

In her personal time, she enjoys traveling and has visited many different countries including Mexico, Malaysia, Singapore, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Portugal, and more! She also enjoys reading, hiking and camping, live music events, plant-based food, and spending quality time with her husband and their pet cat.
