After a semester in Australia and falling in love with education abroad, Ginny began her career in International Education in 2006.  A graduate of Augustana University (06) and Jacksonville University (11), she has been spent the last 15+ years helping JU students and faculty make their study abroad dreams a reality. 

Some of her favorite experiences include traveling with JU students and faculty to Iceland, Ecuador, Costa Rica, and England. 

Outside of work she enjoys family time with her 3 kiddos, reading, and being the official taste tester of her husband’s fine cuisine.

Christina Williams

Assistant Director of Study Abroad & Away

Curious about the possibilities of international experiences, Christina studied and interned abroad for three semesters during her undergraduate career in Norway, New Zealand, and Czechia (SUNY Brockport, ‘17). Christina spent the next five years supporting au pairs traveling to the U.S. through cultural exchange programming. Before arriving to JU, Christina earned her MSc in Comparative Education and International Development in Scotland (The University of Edinburgh, ‘23). She is thrilled to be working in JU’s study abroad office, supporting JU students and faculty to ensure their study abroad dreams come to fruition.

Outside of work, Christina is likely to be found planning her own next trip, practicing yoga, or searching for a good chai latte.
