Julia Cory, Site Specialist
I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio (Go Bengals!) and graduated from Ohio University with a bachelor’s degree in Organizational Communication and a minor in Spanish with an emphasis on diversity. After graduating, I moved to Costa Rica for 6 months to pursue my goal of becoming fluent in Spanish. I served as an intern in the Study Abroad Office at Universidad Veritas, where I found my passion for international education.
After moving back to the United States, I packed up my bags, drove across the country, and landed in Phoenix, Arizona. I started as an intern here at CEA and moved my way up to Site Specialist. In this position, I have the pleasure of guiding students through the process of studying abroad and helping them achieve their international goals.
When I am not at CEA, I love reading, cooking, running, watching football, and listening to The Beatles. Traveling is my one true love, and my goal is to visit every country in Central/ South America.
Did you know? While living in Costa Rica, I volunteered at an animal rescue center where I hung out and made friends with sloths and monkeys for a week!
