Walk-In Advising Hours:

Buna! That’s hello in Romanian. 
After returning from being a Peace Corp volunteer in Transylvania- I decided to work in the field of international education helping international students.  Life took me back to Buffalo, NY (where I grew up- land of chicken wings)- and I worked for SUNY Buffalo for many years assisting international students and scholars.  In 2010, I moved to the ‘Burgh- and am now assisting engineering students to study abroad. 
For fun I enjoy volunteering with my therapy dog Nora, yoga and fitness, international films, crocheting, and travel (of course).

Come talk with me about studying abroad!

Walk-In Advising Hours:

Bonjour! I became the Swanson School’s first Director of International Initiatives in August 2007. In this role I have collaborated with Swanson School faculty members to create international education opportunities for engineering students- including studying abroad, international internships and service learning projects along with other research opportunities abroad. I have also conducted research on learning processes in the context of international education. I studied in Paris, France during my junior year and continue to love visiting countries around the world whenever possible, learning as much as I can about other cultures. I enjoy supporting engineering students and seeing them change from their experiences abroad. 

Come talk with me about studying abroad!
