I started to work as a Visa and Registration Officer at EUSP International Programs in 2011. In 1,5 years I was promoted to be an Assistant to Executive Director of International Programs. In July 2013 I was appointed to the position of International Programs Executive Director. Since then I have been responsible for budgeting and coordination of institutional partnerships with foreign universities at EUSP International Programs.

Before joining the EUSP I was lucky to take a Study Abroad Semester in Vienna University of Economics and Business and did two internships: in Germany and in Switzerland. This fruitful experience helped me realize my interest to international cooperation and promotion of international education opportunities, which led me to the EUSP.
