Luísa has been CIEE Lisbon’s director since 2015. She joined CIEE in 2009. She holds a B.A. in History and Art History and an M.A. in Art History and Preservation.  Luísa also holds a Post-Graduate in Management certificate from the Católica University in Lisbon. Outside CIEE, she has been a participant/volunteer for more than 2 decades in CISV, a youth education organization, leading her to focus on this area of work and interest. She teaches Intercultural Communication and Leadership. Born and raised in Lisbon, she has a passion for her city and loves the growing interest in Portugal. The fact that she is exposed to students and academic visitors has made her constantly question her cultural heritage making her (at least she hopes!) a better global citizen! She is thrilled to be welcoming you to this city and this center! Bem-Vindos!
