Hi! My name is Kaitlyn and I am an Enrollment and Outreach Coordinator at LanguageBird! I graduated from North Carolina State University with a degree in Communications and a minor in Spanish.
Prior to joining the team, I worked for a global educational student travel company where I was the senior enrollment specialist and an international program instructor for middle school and high school students.
My love for languages and learning about different cultures grew from my love of visiting and experiencing new places. As I travel, either by myself, with my family or with a group of students, I find that I do not want to spend my time in long queues and just checking the boxes of the “must see” tourist attractions. Instead, I want to go off the beaten path, have meaningful conversations with locals, check out their favorite restaurants, and go to futbol and rugby games to cheer on the home teams! To me, it is very important to be a traveler and not a tourist and there is no better way of doing so then by learning the local language and culture from a native speaker before heading out! I am so excited to be a part of LanguageBird, giving students the opportunity to broaden their worlds one language class at a time! I cannot wait to help you or your student start their journey!
