Amy is the Associate Director of the Global Education Office. With over a decade of experience working in higher education and study away, Amy is experienced in program development, program management, crisis response, and advising. During her time as an undergraduate, Amy did a semester-long internship in Washington D.C. that significantly changed her future career goals.
