Sadi Foltz, Internship Specialist
I grew up on Whidbey Island in Washington and attended college at Central Washington University, where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, specializing in Marketing Management. I studied abroad in Seville, Spain, completing a minor in Spanish Language and Literature. While living in Seville, I had the opportunity to be an English-language tour guide — showing off my new city and all of the exciting things I learned.
In addition to travelling all over Spain, I’ve also been to Portugal, Italy, Germany, France, Morocco, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, and Argentina. One of my favorite places is Sintra, Portugal, a small city just outside of Lisbon. It has some beautiful castles to explore and the language is mesmerizing.
All of these experiences played a part in leading me to Arizona! As an Internship Specialist with CEA, I am responsible for interviewing and advising all prospective internship students while coaching students to create goals and prepare holistically for their time abroad. I also coordinate with our international Placement Coordinators to seek personalized placements for each student. My goal is to make the process as exciting and seamless as possible.
When I’m not at CEA, I love to play sports (volleyball, in particular), hike, read, craft, refinish old furniture, and try new food. And I’m not done exploring the world! Next on my list would have to be Ireland to wander the beautiful countryside. Beyond that, I would love to explore the UK, Australia, Thailand and Brazil. Where don’t I want to go?
Did you know? I was chased by an elephant in the Okavango Delta in Botswana—I’ve never run so quickly!
