I work at ITA as an Admissions Advisor.
After finishing college I returned to Chicago to work for an IT company. Although I hated my daily routine of sitting in a cubicle, I spent more than 2 years at that company. One day I decided enough was enough, got TEFL certified with the International TEFL Academy and moved to Busan, South Korea. I am so so happy I did and I wish I had done it sooner. After a year in Korea I am back in Chicago helping people achieve their dreams of traveling and living abroad!
Born and raised in Chicago, I went to the University in Kansas where I studied political science...but let's be real I had no clue what the heck I wanted to do with my life.
Italy, France, Germany, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Cuba, Spain, England, The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Croatia, Indonesia, Thailand, Dominican Republic.
I did some traveling with my family growing up, but my first experiencing traveling solo was a backpacking trip through Europe when I was 25. It sparked my love for travel and inspired me to find a way to live abroad... which is one big reason I started teaching English!
The only time I have lived abroad for an extended period of time was when I was teaching in South Korea.
This is an impossible question, but I have to go with Mexican. Nothing beats good tacos.
Making money while traveling abroad is not just a dream...it’s actually extremely doable. I have the opportunity to help people realize this every single day. To me, that’s really cool.
