We Welcome Your Application to Join Us!

We build each of our groups with care, keeping the groups small (no more than twelve students), and paying close attention to age, grade, gender, and the mix of hometowns and schools. Our goal is to put together great groups — groups where nice kids thrive in a supportive, wholesome, and caring environment. Please note: availability as shown is based on students traveling without a friend; if your child is interested in traveling with a friend, please call our office for availability.

Hometown: Allendale, New Jersey
College: Hamilton College

For two summers, I worked as an intern at Columbia University Medical Center doing Alzheimer’s research.

Originally from Allendale, New Jersey, I graduated from Hamilton College in 2018. At Hamilton, I was a Hispanic studies major, biology minor,  and pre-med. Also, I was a captain of the ultimate Frisbee team, a peer counselor, a tour guide, a pre-orientation leader, and a member of the grilling club. I studied abroad in Madrid, Spain, on the HCAYS program — Hamilton College Academic year in Spain. Currently, I’m working as a medical assistant at Boston Sports and Shoulder Center. I enjoy playing sports, watching Game of Thrones, and eating chicken.

In 2018, I led Language & Hiking Spain. Overland students are curious, charismatic, and brave. They put themselves in such a different environment than what most of them are accustomed to, all with the hopes of exploring the outdoors and making friends. That’s a courageous leap not many people are willing to make! It’s exciting to be able to facilitate their explorative journey.
