As a Senior Academic Advisor, Anna combines academic administration tasks such as student registration, faculty assistance, communication with local universities, and experiential learning development projects, with teaching Society and Politics courses at the CEA Barcelona Study Center.
Anna graduated from Pompeu Fabra University with a degree in Political Science and Public Administration. During her undergraduate education, she studied abroad in
Università Degli Studi Rome III (Italy) and in the University of Toronto (Canada). In 2007, Anna earned a Postgraduate Degree in “E-Government and Public Management in Information Technology Society” from Pompeu Fabra University. In 2012, she obtained a master's degree in "Leadership and Personal Development" from the Economics Department at the University of Barcelona.
Anna joined CEA in 2013, but her career has always been closely linked to the international education field; she interned in the Study Abroad Office at Pompeu Fabra University, then served at the Council of International Educational Exchange where she led the Academic Administration Department of its Barcelona Center for seven years. In addition, Anna has had two professional experiences in the U.S.: in 2008, she was a visiting staff member at the Division of Overseas Studies of Georgetown University and in 2009, she interned at the Educational Office of the Consulate General of Spain in San Francisco (CA). At present, Anna collaborates as a guest lecturer in the Study Abroad Program at Universitat Autònoma of Barcelona.
Anna was born in Cambrils, a Mediterranean town in the south of Catalonia, and has travelled through Europe, North America, and North Africa. She loves the sea and open door adventures, and hopes her next destination will be somewhere in Southeast Asia, perhaps Thailand. Her advice for prospective international students is to: "keep an open mind and never stop being curious!"
