Luísa joined CIEE Lisbon's team in 2009, first working as a coordinator and, since 2015, as the team's Director. She holds a B.A. in History and Art History and an M.A. in Art History and Preservation. Luísa also earned a post-graduate certificate from the Católica University in Lisbon in Management. Outside CIEE, she was a participant/volunteer for more than two 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, Luísa 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! Married to a Spaniard, Luísa is a mother of three. Bem-Vindos!
