Admissions Counselors

Nina Baum, Admissions Counselor

I was born and raised in Maryland and spent many summer vacations traveling with my family. I earned a BA from Arizona State University in Business with a concentration in Tourism and an International Business Certificate. As an undergraduate, I did a summer internship in Sydney, Australia. It was a rewarding experience and I made some great friends; in fact, I enjoyed it so much that I became the campus ambassador for my program! 

After graduation, I worked at the Venetian in Las Vegas. While there, I met a professor from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln who runs a program that takes hospitality students abroad for conferences and to study. I took two trips with his program. One the first trip, I spent a week in Dubai and on the second trip we traveled to Manchester and London for a conference in Hospitality and Tourism. The Dubai trip is one of my most memorable study abroad experiences. I learned so much about students, traveling abroad, and networking. I was surprised at how different Dubai was from what people had told me. I felt so comfortable there and loved exploring U.A.E. 

I will complete my Masters in Higher and Postsecondary Education at ASU in 2016. I plan to keep traveling and to keep helping students study abroad. As a CEA Admissions Counselor, I work with students to address their questions and concerns, and share their excitement to travel and explore the world! When I am not at CEA I love to travel, explore new places, hike, and go country dancing. 

Did you know?  I was a gymnast and cheerleader until I was 20. I even cheered on the ASU Club Competition squad for two years.
