Director, Appalachian Overseas Education Programs (Faculty-Led, Short-Term Programs)
Meg is Director of Appalachian Overseas Education Programs. The mission of AOEP is to collaborate with faculty and academic departments to promote rich educational experiences abroad for Appalachian students. The AOEP unit assists faculty program leaders in developing programs that foster stimulating professional growth, support the “local to global” link within our undergraduate curriculum, and most importantly provide students with academically rigorous study abroad opportunities.
Before joining Appalachian State University in 1991, Meg worked in international avenues for three Fortune 500 companies (in Germany and in the U.S.). Meg is a native of Germany where she obtained degrees as translator, interpreter, and foreign correspondent in English and French from ESO Eurosprachenschule in Trier, Germany. She also holds an M.A. in French Education with a minor in Higher Education Administration from Appalachian State University.
She looks forward to meeting with Appalachian faculty and students interested in Appalachian Overseas Education Programs.
