Francesca is the Assistant Director of Global Affairs and currently advises students on all Sacred Heart University study abroad programs.
She studied abroad as a junior in an intensive Spanish language program in Alcalá de Henares, a small town 30 minutes outside of Madrid. There, she was able to learn all about the Spanish way of life, including taking siestas, “tapeando” (eating lots of tapas), and salsa dancing, all while exploring the beautiful country of Spain. After graduating from college, she returned to Spain, this time to Seville, home of the Flamenco dance, to teach ESL to Spanish elementary school students. She loves speaking Spanish and still keeps in touch with many of the amazing people she met during her two experiences abroad.
Francesca obtained her B.A. from Loyola University in Maryland and double majored in Spanish and English. She loves advising students about the many benefits of studying and living abroad!
