Bio: Christy joined the Education Abroad Team in March 2018. Her passion for study abroad began as a high school junior when she spent the summer in St. Brieuc, France, as part of a language immersion program. This amazing experience propelled her to study abroad in Luxembourg for a semester as an undergraduate, during which she traveled extensively across Europe, visiting France, England, Spain, Germany and Austria. Returning to Europe as often as possible continues to be a priority, and the study of French language and culture a life-long interest. Christy holds two music degrees: a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance from Miami University (Ohio) and Master of Music in Piano from the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati. She has served as Adjunct Instructor in the Department of Music at Murray State University since 2008, teaching keyboarding classes and performing with students and faculty. She loves making music with friends, practicing yoga, and spending time with her husband Mike and their boys, Leo and Vinny.
