 Educational Background

BS Travel and Tourism
Clemson University 2016


Since starting at OLLI in May of 2016, I have overseen the genesis of a summer term, seminar programming, and led groups of traditionalists and baby boomers in both domestic and international travel. In partnership with the staff and members at OLLI, I have put together an original travel program of day-, overnight, and multi-night trips peaking interests in a variety of subjects including science, arts and culture, history, and more. OLLI at Clemson University is unique in its travel programming and I am looking to partner with more OLLIs around the Southeast region to build a more interesting and in-depth travel program.
