National Director Study Abroad

Thrilled by adventures in new places and inspiring students with bold Kingdom vision, Tom is in his dream job as InterVarsity's study abroad director. He has worked with InterVarsity for over 22 years, at Brown, Yale, Wesleyan, Southern CT State and several other CT universities. In 2013, Tom and his family (3 boys, 1 wife) moved to Madison, WI to create and lead a new national ministry helping students leverage their study abroad for mission.



International Communications Coordinator
Based in Paris since 2016, Sarah feels a bit like an ongoing study abroader herself. She enjoys connecting study abroaders to the IFES groups in their host countries, mentoring student interns, and collaborating with her teammates to create resources that help students thrive abroad.



Campus Partnership Coordinator

Adri is a Dutch native who has studied in Groningen, the Netherlands; Salzburg, Austria; and California, USA. From 2010-2018, he served international students as InterVarsity campus staff in the Northwest. Now, Adri helps campus staff inspire their American students to become international students.


European Programs Coordinator

Inspired by her time abroad in Tanzania as a student, Bethany was a champion for missional study abroad as a campus staff in D.C. She is now in charge of our Journey pilgrimages and other European programming.


Digital Discipleship Coordinator
Heather considers herself a “third-culture kid” and has studied or lived abroad in the Netherlands, South Africa, Botswana, a sensitive country in East Asian, and a creative-access country in South Asia. After 4 years as campus staff she joined the Study Abroad team to pursue a more internationally focused ministry. She now calls Providence, RI home where she lives in intentional community with friends and her pup, Rhody (named after Rhode Island!)


Study Abroad Student Coordinator
Originally from Michigan, Chelsea has called four continents home as she's pursued various cross-cultural adventures over the years. She longs to see young people equipped and sent to the nations living radically in their identities as sons and daughters of the King.

Hailing from Northeast Indiana, Lindsay is a 2017 graduate of Purdue Fort Wayne. She now resides in Madison, WI, where she serves the Study Abroad team and larger Missions Department from InterVarsity's national office. In her free time, she dreams of competing on The Amazing Race.
