Hi! I’m Julia LoPresti, one of the admissions counselors for SEA Semester. I grew up on the Massachusetts/Rhode Island border and attended school in Washington, DC, before graduating from college in St. Paul, MN. At Macalester College, I majored in linguistics, but also spent a summer abroad, studying film and photography in Scotland, and a language immersion program in County Galway, Ireland.
Inspired by my own experiences abroad, I worked in international admissions for a university in Europe after college. As a lifelong volunteer for multiple Massachusetts Audubon sanctuaries, I am especially thrilled to unite my experiences in international and environmental education at SEA Semester. What I like most about the SEA Semester programs is the multidisciplinary, communal approach that helps students meet their academic and personal goals while on shore and at sea!
Outside of SEA Semester, I am still an avid traveler (11 countries so far!), sock knitter, sewer and Irish dancer.
