Theresa started working at the College in 2008. In addition to advising students on academic matters, she serves as the director of the College’s study abroad program. The daughter of a Ghanaian diplomat, she is no stranger to international education. Starting with elementary school in Lome, Togo, followed by high school in London, UK, she went on to spend a year living and studying abroad at Université Cheikh Anta Diop in Dakar, Sénégal, during her undergraduate studies at the University of Cape Coast, Ghana. This international exposure, in part, propelled her to a career in international education. Her expertise includes managing study abroad and exchange programs, international partnership formation, international student and scholar visa advising, and fellowships advising. As the director of study abroad, she advises study abroad students and assists them to incorporate the new cultural perspectives into their academic interests.
Theresa is a Fulbright Scholar, one of 10 recipients of the 2017 Fulbright International Education Administrators (IEA) Seminar in Japan. Through the Fulbright grant, she spent two weeks in Japan learning about the societal, cultural and higher education systems of Japan. Prior to the Fulbright, she also received the 2013 Baden-Württemberg Seminar Award to Germany to learn about U.S.-German Educational Exchange. She received a Master’s degree in Student Personnel and Counseling in Higher Education from Widener University, Pennsylvania. She enjoys dancing, collecting artifacts from around the world, and reading children’s picture books. She has traveled to over 25 countries and counting!
