Heather joined the BU Study Abroad staff in 2012 and is the main contact for students interested in studying abroad in Spain or Latin America.

Since that initial experience abroad, Heather has led trips, studies, traveled, interned and volunteered in numerous Latin American countries, including Argentina, Bolivia, Costa Rice, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Honduras, Peru, and Uruguay.
Prior to joining the BU Study Abroad team, Heather worked as an Education Abroad Advisor and Babson College for almost five years, advising graduate and undergraduate students, as well as incoming exchange students, throughout their study abroad experiences. Heather holds an MA in Intercultural Relations from Lesley College and a BA in Administrative Science and Spanish from Colby College.
