          • 1985-1989, Bachelor of Arts (BA), Political Science and Government

            The opportunity to work with professors, intern in Congress and for AIPAC has immeasurably helped me both in my career and helped me meet friends that I will have for a lifetime

          • 1990-1994, BA, Spanish / Latin American Studies

            There is not a better classroom than Washington, DC. As a student, AU opened my mind to different cultures, different ways of thinking and brilliant professors and students. You will always be challenged and will make friends/connections for a lifetime.
