Suzanne joined the Education Abroad team in 2014. She focuses primarily on internal outreach, marketing and communications. Among other tasks, her responsibilities include developing our communication and outreach strategy, managing our website, blogs and social media, overseeing outreach and events on campus, and updating our publications.
A native of the Philadelphia suburbs, Suzanne received her undergraduate degree from the University of Pittsburgh, and worked for several years as a professional event marketing manager and graphic designer before enrolling in the graduate program in Art History here at Temple. She studied abroad in Florence, Italy as an undergraduate and attended the Graduate Seminar in Aesthetics and Cultural Studies at Temple University Rome as a master’s student. Suzanne is now a PhD candidate working on her dissertation in Renaissance art history and returns to Italy as often as possible. She has taught art history courses, including the History of Graphic Design, Renaissance Masters and Art History Survey at Tyler School of Art and the History of Communications Design at the University of the Arts. Before coming to Education Abroad, Suzanne managed communications and events for Temple’s Teaching and Learning Center.
In her spare time, Suzanne enjoys spending time with family and friends, cooking, traveling, visiting local museums and galleries, and breaking out her old art supplies.
What do you like about working in Education Abroad so far?
"The positive energy in this office is contagious, so I really look foward to coming to work everyday. I feel very lucky. My favorite part so far has been managing the student blogs. It is rewarding to watch the transformation that takes place over the course of the program, no matter where the students go."
