Born and raised in Morgantown, West Virginia, Frances grew up going to Mountaineer basketball and football games and enjoying life in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains. She holds a BA in psychology from Ohio University and is currently pursuing an MBA at the University of Nevada, Reno. Her first study abroad love was México. She studied and worked there for two semesters and became passionate about Mexican culture and the Spanish language. She’s had the opportunity to assist study abroad programs on site in Ecuador, Italy, and the United Kingdom. These experiences introduced her to the world of international education, and are her motivation to continue supporting students to pursue their dreams to study and live overseas. In her free time, she enjoys yoga, Latin dancing, drinking coffee, and planning her next trip.
