Ready to start your adventure?
Where are you from originally?
Why did you choose to become a field advisor?
Sometimes I laugh at how long it took for me to realize that this is what I should be doing with my life. Being an FA combines all of my favorite things together. I get to travel the world, see new things, be outside, try new food, and, most importantly, have a positive impact on people’s lives. I love the community which is built through experiences such as these, and I’m honored to be able to be a part of it.
How did you begin teaching/traveling?
When I was in University, I spent a semester in New Zealand in an outdoor education facility learning about environmental sustainability. From that moment I discovered two passions of mine: travel and experiential education. After that experience, I knew I needed to travel and discover more of the world, so I set off to teach English in Thailand for 2 years. My study abroad experience in NZ was really the lift-off point.
What are you most excited for about Winterline in Trimester 2?
I’m so excited to meet all of the students and get to know who they are and what they are passionate about. I’m also very excited to head back to Thailand and have the program end so close to my hometown!
What’s the most incredible thing you’ve ever seen while traveling?
On Sumatra Island in Indonesia, I got up close and personal with an orangutan, and on Bali I had an amazing view of Mount Agung as it went through one of its smaller eruptions. It was wild to see nature so raw and dramatic right in front of my eyes.
What’s the most important thing students and parents should know about you?
I am in this line of work because I love it. I love to connect with young adults and help them discover something about themselves, help them uncover their potential. This kind of experience is one of a kind and I am so excited to help learn and grow from it.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
I’ve hiked 20 out of 48 New Hampshire 4000 footers and hope to complete the rest in 2019!
