As a proud Michigan kid who called Ohio home, I am an avid card game player, lover of Jodi Picoult books, and fitness coach. I have always had an affinity for community, group dynamics, and leadership, and am passionate about these interests colliding through my work with SFS. During undergrad, I studied communication, human rights, and social justice at the University of Dayton. I’m a go-getter with energy to make a difference in the lives of those around me, so I spent my time in undergrad working internships at local and international non-profits as well as multiple coaching jobs in boxing, spinning, and HIIT. I am incredibly curious about the world and have a strong desire for cross-cultural connection. Within a few days working for SFS, I knew this was a place I could show my skills, grow as an individual and professional, and give my energy to helping others thrive during their abroad experience.
