From a very young age, I have had the privilege of traveling to see family and friends that lived in Morocco and Spain. When I was 12 years old my family uprooted and moved to Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire (West Africa). Boy, was that a life-changing experience! Through this experience, I was able to gain a deep appreciation for everything this great big world has to offer.
I completed my study abroad while attending the College of Charleston (Charleston, SC) and spent the spring semester of 2013 in Meknes, Morocco. This was definitely one of the most rewarding and exciting times of my life!
In all, I have been fortunate enough to travel to Morocco, Spain, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Dominican Republic, England, Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Grand Cayman. I don’t have a favorite destination, but Thailand, Chile, and South Africa are on my to-go list.
As an Admissions Counselor, I'm the first contact for students who are interested in studying abroad with CEA. I provide thorough instruction and advice on choosing the perfect program for each individual student based on their wants and needs. When I’m not at CEA, I love to cook, travel, have Netflix binges, read, and play with my puppy, Leila!
Did you know? About 10 years ago I visited Kakum National Park, an undisturbed rainforest park in Ghana. I went up the Canopy Walkway and, after seven terrifying bridges, I finally made it to the rainforest canopy, where I saw a few monkeys and even heard an elephant!
