Academic Focus: Sustainability in Education Abroad
Hometown: Mason, MI
Advisor: Dr. Gail Vander Stoep
After completing my Bachelor's degree in Japanese Language and Culture, I worked for a Japanese automotive parts trading company in Novi, MI. Throughout undergrad, I participated in study abroad programs to Japan, which sparked my interest in working in the study abroad field. I also grew up visiting many forests, parks, and trails throughout Michigan, which fostered my interest in environmental sustainability practices. To combine both interests, I am now pursing an MS-B degree in Sustainable Tourism and Protected Area Management, and my focus is increasing sustainability options and practices within the study abroad field.
