James LaRue

Financial Services Specialist

I grew up in Los Angeles, right on the beach, where I spent my early years hiking, surfing, and playing volleyball. I came to Arizona in 2014 when I started school at Arizona State University and fell in love with the state for its beauty and history. Prior to my current position, I worked in a calzone shop and then interned here at CEA!

I do not remember when I developed my love for traveling abroad but that may have something to do with the fact that my parents brought me on a family vacation to New Zealand when I was just a few months old and then to Scotland only a year later. The need to travel and explore has been ingrained into my mind ever since, so I am incredibly proud to be part of a team that makes that dream a reality for others.

A fun fact about me is I spend my free time finding and then exploring abandoned gold mines throughout the state, which is as exhilarating as it is terrifying.

A few years ago, I was on the same flight across the country as Flavor Flav (a famous TV personality for those who are not familiar). Sometime during the course of our flight, Flavor Flav decided to become a flight attendant for the day and started to hand out pretzels, drinks, and even spoke on the intercom! Random and unique events like these definitely intensify my passion for travel.

Besides Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, and several cities in Canada, I’d have to say the picturesque beaches of Hawaii rank at the top of my favorite places to travel list. But that’s only until I make my way to England next—I’ve never been, but the country’s culture and personality really interests me.

As a CEA Student Accounts Advisor, I try to tie in my love of travelling into day-to-day tasks and interactions with students. I’m responsible for assisting students through the funding process of their study abroad, including aspects such as scholarships and financial aid. When I’m not working, I enjoy swimming, playing tennis, and watching movies.

Did you know? I was a professional on-air radio personality for 13 years before starting a new career in 2010!
