Anna has always had a strong interest in study abroad and international education. While obtaining her BA in philosophy and political science at Boston College, she spent a year studying abroad at the Università di Parma in Italy. After graduation, she worked with the University of Delaware's summer program for Middle Eastern and North African students before deciding to return to Europe to obtain her master's in International and European Politics at the University of Edinburgh. In July 2008, Anna joined the UK staff of The College of Global Studies, working first for a few months with the London Center, then returning to Edinburgh to work with Arcadia's Scottish programs. While living overseas, Anna had the opportunity to indulge her favorite pastime and travel all over Europe, as well as to Turkey and Tunisia. After living abroad for more than five years, Anna relocated back the US in February 2012 to join the Glenside staff as a Program Manager.
