health and safety Leadership
Eryn comes to us with 15 years of experience in international education at the Institute for Study Abroad (IFSA), with 8 years serving as the Director of Health, Safety and Security and the Assistant Director of Health, Safety, and Security. During part of her time at IFSA, she lived abroad in Heredia, Costa Rica, to gain hands-on experience with study abroad students in an international setting. She has also held roles in academic affairs and program advising in education abroad and has a well-rounded view of the many facets of our field.
Eryn is well connected in the field of education abroad and risk management and has collaborated on several presentations at the Forum on Education Abroad conference, held memberships in OSAC, Pulse, NAFSA, and Forum, and has co-authored several health and safety publications for Forum.
As Director of Health and Safety at CEA, Eryn will work closely with CEA staff across the U.S. and internationally, as well as directly with our U.S. partner institutions, to ensure that our coordination of emergency response protocols is seamless and that our CEA staff is abreast of the most current health and safety issues in the field.
If you have any questions about the development and coordination of CEA programs and services that promote student well-being, please contact her directly: email@example.com.
health and safety Team
Hannah joins CEA as our first Manager of Health and Safety. Hannah completed a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and a minor in Spanish at Butler University, and she spent a semester studying abroad in Dublin, Ireland during her junior year. Her time abroad opened her eyes to the beauty of what there is to be gained by learning from other cultures and the personal growth that can happen when you step outside your comfort zone.
That experience inspired a passion to support other students on their own transformative study abroad journeys. Hannah began working at the Institute for Study Abroad (IFSA) as a Program Advisor and eventually moved into the role of Assistant Director, Student Engagement. The past seven years working as an advisor made Hannah realize how important it is that students have access to the tools they need to be successful abroad, whatever that may look like, and she is very excited to apply that approach from a health & safety perspective at CEA!
Of course, like most in the field, Hannah loves travelling, and her favorite destination so far has been New Zealand. She will be excited to travel pretty much anywhere as the world starts to open back up, but she is really hoping to make her way back to Ireland soon. In her personal time, Hannah is an avid reader and tries to spend as much time outside as possible. She enjoys baking and is a big fan of college basketball and musical theater.
