In my role in the GPS Alliance Dean’s Office, I support the development of contracts and agreements with international institutions to facilitate international educational programming. I work with faculty and staff from across the University to create and put in place agreements with the input of the Office of General Counsel. As a member of the International Health, Safety, and Compliance team, I also take on a supporting role of managing student, faculty, and staff international travel registration and insurance needs, in addition to compliance with University travel policy.
I’ve been honored to work in many different roles to support global education, training, and research at the University of Minnesota since 2002. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in French and Global Studies (2001) and my Master’s Degree in Comparative International Development Education (2005), both from the University of Minnesota. I’m also a proud MSID Senegal alumna and Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (South Africa), experiences that I credit for inspiring my career path that strives to advance sustainable, responsible, and mutually beneficial international partnerships with UMN stakeholders.
