I am a Senior Program Assistant for AMIDEAST’s Education Abroad department, located in Washington, D.C. Along with my colleagues in D.C, I work closely with AMIDEAST field staff in Jordan, Morocco, and Oman to coordinate summer, semester, and academic year education abroad opportunities. Specifically, I assist in the pre-departure process for AMIDEAST Jordan students, manage our application system, am the first point of contact for prospective students, and conduct outreach to universities and colleges throughout the United States.
My favorite part about my job is helping students prepare to study in one of the most welcoming, naturally beautiful regions of the world. Further, I love having the opportunity to return to the Middle East for work.
