Brittni Weimer

Site Specialist Manager
I have always loved to travel. Growing up, I moved around a few times, and I believe that’s what opened my eyes to the possibility of exploring and traveling abroad. I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a double major in International Affairs and Political Science; while in college, I studied abroad three times.

My junior year, I studied abroad for a semester in Alicante, Spain, and my love for Spain grew unconditionally. I still stay in touch with my host family from Alicante! My second study abroad experience was in London, and my third took me to Palma de Mallorca, Spain. While studying abroad, I had the chance to explore 11 different countries: my favorites include Iceland, Turkey, and Morocco. In my next travel opportunity, I would like to explore Asia.

I now live in Phoenix, AZ, and I love it! My entire family lives here, and it’s great to be around them all the time. When I’m not working with study abroad students at CEA, I have a huge passion for cooking and discovering hidden gem restaurants around town. I also like to go hiking with my friends and enjoy the outdoors as much as possible before the summer heat takes over.

As a Site Specialist Manager, I want to help answer any questions you have and give you all the knowledge I can about living abroad. I also want to get you very excited for your upcoming semester abroad! My biggest advice for future students is to not forget about exploring your host city. Many students go abroad and plan a trip every weekend to another country and forget to enjoy what is around them.
