While not an official member of the Illinois Tech Study Abroad team, Carly is an invaluable resource to students preparing to go abroad. Carly moved from Michigan to Chicago in 2012 to be an elementary school teacher through a program called Teach for America. After teaching for six years, she pursued her Master's of Science in Higher Education Administration and Policy. Carly is passionate about educational equity and is thus excited to be serving in the Office of Financial Aid.
