Kaitlyn is a recent graduate of the University of Wyoming with degrees in Spanish and Religious Studies; during her time as a student, she studied abroad twice. She studied for one semester at the University of Salamanca in Salamanca, Spain with AIFS and taught English for one summer in Quito, Ecuador with Kaya Responsible Travel. As a first generation, low-income college graduate, Kaitlyn has a lot of experience in applying for education abroad scholarships and fundraising in creative ways. Outside of Spain and Ecuador she has travelled to Canada, England, Italy, Morocco, and the Canary Islands.  

When she is not traveling, advising students, and taking classes, Kaitlyn enjoys hiking, reading, baking, and buying books (leaving her wallet a bit lighter but her heart much fuller). Some of her favorite things include Harry Potter, dachshunds, and a good cup of coffee.

She is excited to meet you and join you in your education abroad journey!
