Leading Provider of Summer High School Study Abroad Programs Announces New Program Advisor
SPI HIGH SCHOOL STUDY ABROAD ANNOUNCES NEW ADDITION TO THE TEAM, CARRIE STRAUB, ADMISSIONS & PROGRAM ADVISOR
Austin, TX (I-Newswire) February 14, 2013 - SPI Study Abroad, a leading provider of quality summer study abroad programs for high school students, today announced the appointment of Carrie Straub as Admissions & Program Advisor.
A study abroad veteran, Straub completed a year-long program at the University of Granada in Granada, Spain. She earned her degrees in both Spanish and International Studies at the University of Nebraska and now comes to SPI Study Abroad from Wells Fargo, where she served as the residing Service Manager.
After first completing a brief internship at SPI Study Abroad, Straub takes on a new role as the SPI Admissions & Program Advisor. She will apply her excellent customer service skills, leadership, and knowledge of Spain and international education that are relevant to the niche of high school study abroad.
“I have no doubt Carrie will thrive in her new position as our Program Advisor, helping both parents and students through the high school study abroad experience,” said Jeremy Goodwin SPI Executive Director. “Her expert customer service and communication skills with clients will play a vital role in helping them feel comfortable sending their teen on a summer immersion program.”
Personalized service is something that SPI Study Abroad takes pride in, making many efforts to ensure each family feels they are receiving the support they need, from enrollment, through pre-departure and during the summer programs abroad. Carrie’s addition to the team demonstrates that these practices continue, despite the company’s rapid growth and expansion each year.
“Word of mouth referrals are the key source for most high school study abroad enrollments,” said SPI Program Director Celeste Weary, “So establishing good relationships and communication with our participants and their families is instrumental to our success as a business. With the addition of Carrie to the SPI Study Abroad team, we’re ready for more growth!”
“My study abroad experience in college was an absolute turning point in my life and shaped the person I am today in terms of my career, passions, and vision of the world,” said Straub. “My only regret is not having done it earlier in my studies! I’m thrilled to be a part of the SPI Study Abroad mission of offering high school language immersion and global leadership programs, helping students have a life-changing experience as it was for me.”
Carrie will be based at the SPI Study Abroad office in Austin, Texas to serve the company’s growing base of high school student participants, families, and alumni.
