  • Studied abroad in Nairobi, Kenya
  • Traveled abroad to France, Italy, Mexico, and Thailand

Why Julia works in study abroad: The life lessons learned through global education are incredible. I love helping faculty create programs that will provide these experiences and life lessons for our students. And I love connecting with students to better understand their goals and aligning them with their perfect program and global education experience!

Advice for students preparing to go abroad: When you get lost (it's bound to happen!), take a break and eat. Then enjoy the process of finding your way back!

One of the most important lessons Julia learned while studying abroad or traveling: It's is always ok to take a tea/coffee break, especially when it's with others. Take the time to connect and learn from other people.
