How long have you worked at Bentley?
Since December 2010.
Tell us about why you chose a career in International Education at Bentley.
I have worked in the field of international education since 2000, and have worked in all capacities, including helping exchange students come to the US, leading group travel abroad, and advising students studying abroad. I am thrilled to join the team at Bentley and to help students here pursue experiences abroad.
Where have you lived/traveled/worked/studied abroad?
In college, I spent a semester studying in Padova, Italy. After graduating, I was a bike tour guide in Italy, and had the opportunity to travel extensively there. My favorite spots in Italy are Rome and Cinque Terre. I have traveled throughout Europe, and and most recently visited Chile.
Advice for students studying abroad:
Your experience abroad will change you in ways you never could have anticipated. Be open-minded about trying new things and meeting new people. Every day can be an adventure if you're up for it!
