Gave several talks about study abroad, including a talk in front of ~200 Freshman at orientation, ~70 students preparing to travel abroad, four classrooms ranging from 20-40 students, and two groups at a Sophomore bootcamp event. The talks consisted of storytelling and big picture thinking as to why study abroad is an effective and useful experience to reach personal goals.

Attended several on-campus events, including two Study Abroad Fairs, to speak to prospective students about study abroad opportunities and answer any questions or concerns. The focus was on selling study abroad as a valuable experience.

Attended the New England Study Abroad Returnee Conference (NERC) on February 22, 2014 to bring back advice and materials for the Global Education Office to improve its advertising efforts.

Global Education Office (GEO) Guide
Fall 2013 – Spring 2014
back to top

Worked solo alongside the Associate Director of the GEO to welcome incoming study abroad students during a two-day orientation during the Fall semester and again in the Spring semester. Discussions on expectations, cultural differences, and general information eventually lead to a campus and regional tour of the area.

Continued to check-in with the International students throughout each semester and introduce them to peers and experiences. Took students mountain climbing, bowling, on mini-trips, and invited them to several social events.

Worked with one assigned student throughout the semester to answer questions, give advice, and attend to any extraneous needs.

Software Engineering Teaching Assistant
Fall 2013
back to top

Tutored students on software engineering principles one-on-one throughout the semester by incrementally introducing concepts that were tough to digest. Much work was done to understand the fundamentals behind the concepts.

Graded and gave extensive feedback to 20 students on a dozen assignments throughout the semester. All grades were built around an objective measure, and all feedback was built around student-specific needs and problem areas.

Set up a system to reduce grading time and improve objectivity and efficiency by working with the professor to create an efficient communication environment. Much work was done early on to target areas that could be improved with respect to the grading formulas that worked in the past. Overall, many hours of work was removed by implementing various improvements.

Classroom Notetaker
Fall, 2012 – Spring 2014
back to top

Wrote, edited, and shared notes over three semesters to students who required additional classroom aid. Tailored the notes to add on to classroom discussions and clarify difficult and complex topics. Color coded the notes for ease of digestion and organized notes in a consistent way to be easily legible.

Worked with students to improve and tailor the notes to their specific classroom needs and added outside reference material that aided the classroom discussion.

Notes were uploaded as soon as the class period ended on a consistent basis with legible titles and additional notes on what was included in that discussion.

Farm Hand
Summer 2011
back to top

  • Planted, managed, and harvested organic fruits and vegetables by hand.
  • Repaired farm buildings, fences, and other structures.
  • Connected and placed irrigation equipment.
  • Packaged and stored fruits and vegetables for transportation after harvest.
  • Dug and insulted perimeter of large storage facility.
  • Directed parking during on-location farm showcases.

Suggested system improvements to save time and money in farming structure. Figured out how full to fill bags and space them to keep tarps covering vegetables from blowing away, the best strategy for planting vegetables quickly without straining my team’s bodies, how to shift workload difficulty, and how to creatively weed through and reduce damage done to crops.
