Since, I was about twelve years old, I have had a very strong desire and interest to experience the world and learn about other cultures.   My parents gave our family a wonderful gift at that time by hosting an exchange student from India.  This decision had a huge impact on my life and my passion for International experiences.   I have had the privilege to visit India and to participate in a summer Rotary exchange to Italy while in high school.

During my college career at Lock Haven University where I earned a BA in International Studies, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Japan and Mexico for two semesters.  For 14 years, I provided international travel and visa services to international companies and Lehigh University, and now as coordinator of the Study Abroad Office, I am living my dream of helping Lehigh students have an International experience.   During the Fall 09 semester, I am beginning to work towards an M.Ed. in Globalization and Educational Change in the College of Education.

When I’m not working or studying, I am spending time with my very busy daughter, Delaney, helping her with her homework, driving her to dance, ice skating, or piano lessons, or just having fun together.
