Kristina EscuderoKristina Escudero

Study Abroad & Away Coordinator






Kristina’s passion for travel and culture stemmed from her first study abroad experience in Valencia, Spain. After spending 8 months studying and working as a Program Assistant for Florida State University’s study center in Valencia, she graduated from FSU with her B.A. in International Affairs and Spanish. She then made a permanent move to Madrid, Spain in 2014, teaching English for 2 years at a secondary school. Fluent in Spanish, she began a bilingual Masters program in Madrid, and in July 2017 she finished her graduate degree in International Relations, from the University Institute of European Studies at CEU San Pablo University. A native of Jacksonville, Kristina returned home and started working at JU in October 2017. She loves working to help students make their study abroad dreams a reality, just as she did. She constantly craves a good café con leche, a Valencia sunset and the next adventure.

Reach out to Kristina for: Student Advising; Faculty-Led Programming; Campus Marketing and Outreach.
