International Student Services Coordinator

Biography

I am from Birmingham, AL and earned a BA in International Studies with a Japanese Minor from the University of Alabama (UA) and an M.Ed in International Higher Education in 2018 from Loyola University in Chicago. I speak Japanese fluently and currently trying to learn Korean and Dutch! While at UA I worked with international students as an ESL (English as a Second Language) tutor which fueled my enthusiasm to support and advocate for international students before and during their time in the United States. My love for travel led me to spend one year in Japan as an undergraduate; in addition to visiting 4 other countries. I also enjoy cooking, playing video games (Overwatch is one of my favorites), fitness and coffee.
