"I currently work for the Los Angeles City Controller as the Deputy Director of Communications. I enjoy the outdoors, dancing and being physically active. Studying abroad at WHU has been one of the best choices I could ever make. I had always dreamed of studying abroad and am fortunate that I was able to still do this while working in my current position. My two weeks were jam packed with interactive lectures and discussions around Germany's economy, government, industries and the overall EU framework. I especially enjoyed the group work at the end of each lecture which allowed us to apply our learning while also getting to know other students in the program. I also certainly appreciated the readings which were hand picked by each professor. In our downtime, I had the opportunity to go on a few jogs around the neighborhood of Vallendar and along the Rhine River, have dinner in Frankfurt and Cologne and spend a weekend in Amsterdam. As the world continues to get smaller through technology and more competitive through our connections, studying abroad is a competitive advantage that is needed to compete in today's global market."
