About Susan Meredith

Susan Meredith is an alumna of the University of Iowa, graduating with her B.A. in International Studies. After graduating, she spent three years completing environmental fieldwork, research, and service with AmeriCorps and Student Conservation Association. Which is a fancy way of saying she hiked 30-50 miles a week in the woods creating trail maps and emergency evacuation plans all over the country. A fun fact about Susan is she is just 4 states shy of visiting all 50 U.S. States! However, there is only one state like Kentucky, and she is going on her third year at the University of Kentucky, working in UK Education Abroad. She found her passion for education abroad during her semester study abroad program in Australia. While reflecting on her own experience she realized that there were many ways she could contribute to the field and provide student support. A bit of hard work and wooing, she landed her dream job with UK Education Abroad. She now challenges to students to really think critically how this experience will push them further in their education and career. She does not stop there, she also continues to push herself and grow in her education. UK offers so many wonderful resources and opportunities; she is now currently working to complete the Professional MBA program.
