I have over 12 years of experience working in higher education as an academic advisor and learning specialist, including advising and teaching international students. English is my only language, but I have studied a few languages including French and Chinese. Outside of work, I love traveling (especially internationally!), trying new food, being active and trying to keep up with my toddler. We currently live in Ohio, where we are from, but have also lived in Dallas, TX, and Chicago!
