She earned her Master’s degree in Intercultural Relations at Lesley University while also working at the MIT International Scholars Office and MIT Spouses & Partners Connect. Originally from South Carolina, she holds a dual Bachelor of Arts in German and Communication Studies from the College of Charleston, during which she studied and lived abroad in Germany, South Africa, France, & Austria. For fun she enjoys traveling, singing/playing guitar, and dancing Brazilian Zouk, a Latin partner dance that no one’s really heard of, yet…
