After graduating from Emory, Michelle lived abroad in Spain, Australia and New Zealand picking up jobs from teaching English to selling a milkman service door to door and booking adventure tourism excursions. While abroad she learned to scuba dive, ski and snowboard and completed a 600 mile hike on the Bibbulmun track. Her travels and interactions with people from all over the world reinforced a passion for other cultures and a belief that studying or working abroad should be a part of everyone’s social and intercultural development. In her free time she enjoys hiking, camping, snowshoeing and kayaking.
Before joining The School for Field Studies in September 2015, Michelle was an Education Abroad Advisor and BRIC Manager at Babson College. During her time at Babson, she travelled as the administrator for faculty-led courses abroad in Russia, China, India, Uruguay, Argentina and Malaysia. She also led a group of students, alumni and staff to Tanzania to facilitate the Babson Entrepreneurial Leadership Academy for a group of 100 local high school students. Michelle is thrilled to be a part of The School for Field Studies team and continue to encourage students to use the world as their classroom.
