I graduated from Wake Forest in 2001 with a major in Political Science and a minor in Italian.  The faculty and breadth of international and comparative politics courses I took at Wake inspired me to pursue graduate studies in foreign policy, and prepared me well for a career with the U.S. Department of State.   After Wake Forest, I earned a masters degree in international affairs from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service.  I worked for several years in Washington, DC at the Delegation of the European Commission and the Office of International Affairs at the U.S. Department of Justice.  In 2007, I joined the Department of State as a Foreign Service Officer.  I’m currently serving my first assignment in Taipei, Taiwan, where I live with my husband and son.
