Alma helps oversee implementation and strategy of 20+ term-long study abroad programs and all exchange partnerships. She​ advises specifically on term-long programs in Latin America (Chile & Mexico), Europe (Spain & Italy - Milan only), College of Law exchanges, & external study abroad. ​She is a member of the Study Abroad Diversity Committee. This committee focuses on the promotion and advocacy of diversity and inclusion in education abroad via outreach to university stakeholders, as well as providing various trainings and workshops for students, faculty and staff. Alma is a Double Demon – She received her Bachelor of Science in Business and Master of Science in Human-Computer Interaction from DePaul.​ Alma studied abroad during her junior year on the Madrid: Spanish Language and Culture program. While in Spain, she also interned for Tommy Hilfiger at the Spanish headquarters in their showrooms. As a student, Alma was the first in her family to attend university and she never thought she would leave the Chicago area, but a great academic advisor pushed her to study abroad and that experience changed her life and career path. She hopes to do the same for DePaul students and help them have transformative study abroad experiences, like her own.
