"Dear Friends:
I am pleased to announce the arrival of Meaghan LaVangie as the new Senior Program Coordinator in the Office of Graduate and International Programs. Meaghan joins us from Explorica Educational Travel, where she has worked as a Program Consultant in the International Tours Department for the past two years. A 2009 graduate of Hamilton College, where she received her B.A. with a double concentration in Hispanic Studies and Government (and spent a semester abroad, studying in Madrid), Meaghan has also worked as an immigration paralegal at the Boston law firm, Pappas and Lenzo. How's that for a good fit?! In our office, Meaghan will be responsible for the daily administration of our study abroad programs, our Summer Legal Institute in London and a range of cross-LL.M. initiatives and activities, including supporting Tibby Cail, our Assistant Director for Professional Development. Feel free to say hello in our office (room 1534) if you do not get to meet Meaghan when we make the rounds. Her email is lavangie@bu.edu."
