Camila’s desire to pursue international education as a career was influenced by her personal background and upbringing. As the daughter of Chileans, Camila grew up spending the academic years in the US, and summers in Chile. The experience of spending long periods of time in Chile, and also through other international travel, led Camila to think about international education as a potential career path. As a junior at Skidmore College, Camila spent the spring semester of her junior year abroad in Madrid, Spain. This transformative experience, coupled with her international background, led Camila to pursue international education as a career. After graduating from Skidmore, Camila went on to complete her Master’s degree in Higher Education Administration at Syracuse University, where she held her first professional experience, as the counselor for SU’s study abroad programs in Madrid, Spain, Santiago, Chile, and Istanbul, Turkey. Camila received her Doctorate in Education from Northeastern University in 2021, where her research focused on examining first-generation college students' pathways to international educaiton.
