Erika Saunders headshotErika Saunders

Education Abroad Advisor
Tel: 307-766-2559

Erika was born and raised in Laramie! She moved to Vermont for her undergraduate studies at Middlebury College. During her time at Middlebury, she studied abroad for two semesters during her junior year, in Bordeaux, France and Florence, Italy. These international experiences inspired her to pursue an M.A. in International Education Management at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies. She had the pleasure of completing her degree by doing a graduate internship in Paris working for the Middlebury School in France.


More about Erika!

  • adventuring- either abroad or in the mountains
  • learning new languages (she especially likes learning French and Italian)
  • cooking recipes that she learned from her host families abroad,
  • her two cats, Buddy and Apollo, and

Pro Tip

Set goals for yourself! Consider why you want to go abroad, what you want to gain from the experience, and how you can make that happen. The experience goes by quickly, but setting goals beforehand can help you make sure that you make the most of the unique opportunities that will be presented to you.

Erika believes that the best way to engage with a new culture is through exploration of food, music, and foreign languages. She is excited to meet you and looks forward in helping you explore new cultures and countries!
