Communications & Systems Specialist
My role: I am responsible for overseeing the operations and training of the Study Abroad application system, the Travel Registry system (NDI’s registration system for international travel), and various other systems and programs the NDI uses in its day-to-day activities. On the communications side, I maintain the NDI main website as well as oversee the websites of our global gateways and centers.
Why I find my work important: With the ever-changing landscape of ‘safe travel,’ I find it very important to help students, faculty, and staff make sure they are prepared as much as possible for whatever may come their way during their travels, whether international or domestic. The study abroad and travel registration pre-departure processes may seem tedious and cumbersome; however, the safest traveler is well-informed and well-prepared.
Professional background: I have been at the University for seven years in various roles, where I have gained experience and extensive knowledge of campus processes and systems. Prior to my arrival at Notre Dame, I was a preschool teacher, where I honed my interactive skills with the younger generation. I have also held several administrative and systems management roles for several food industry franchise organizations.
