EF Gap Year Consultant – Boston, MA
Directly following high school, I heavily debated if college was the right step for me. I wish I had known more about, or considered, gap year programs when I was at that crossroad; instead, I completed my degree and spent a year studying abroad in Spain, then in Argentina. This year abroad, immersing myself in different cultures and diving deep into the Spanish language, was formative in both my life and career.
Immediately following graduation, I moved to Nicaragua to work on a service project. Little did I know, I'd spend the next decade living in Nicaragua, building up an education business on a demonstrative farm and hosting gap year students, volunteers, and interns from all over the world! I am passionate about experiential education, intentional travel, and exploring new cultures. Some of my favorite travel experiences have included hiking the Inca trail, exploring the wilderness in the Tierra del Fuego, and exploring all the street food across busy Tokyo.
I know talking on the phone isn't anyone's favorite thing to do, but here's why calls are part of our process: taking a gap year is an incredible, life-changing decision—one that you'll feel way more confident about after talking it all over with an expert who can guide you through the process of building your perfect gap. Baby steps, though, so feel free to start by texting me!
Where my ultimate gap year would take place is constantly changing, but these are the places that have been on my bucket list for years!
