Meet Ryan!

Ryan Geiger, On-Site Program Coordinator

Ryan Geiger
Born in Northeastern, Pennsylvania, I always had an interest in all things international, traveling, cultures, and politics, taking any and every opportunity to travel as often as I could. I earned my BA in Political Science and History from Bloomsburg University of PA. My specialization was in international relations where I participated in many clubs and organizations ultimately leading to me working with the Organization of American States. Prior to earning my master’s degree, I worked in healthcare at Geisinger Health Systems, the largest rural healthcare provider in the US. I began my Master of Education in Counseling and College Student Affairs where I specialized in international education and retention programs and strategies for first-year students.

During graduate school, I had the opportunity to lead many trips with first-year and international students including trips to New York City, Boston, MA, Philadelphia, PA, Baltimore, MD, and Washington, D.C. I also assisted with leading a group of students from Bloomsburg’s speech and debate team to Montreal, Canada. While in graduate school, I studied abroad in Italy and Switzerland.

I came to OHIO in February 2014 as an International Student Advisor in the International Student & Faculty Services Office where I primarily advise international students and oversee all assessment activities for the department. An avid foodie, I love cooking and enjoying the many, good restaurants in Athens. I am training for a triathlon and half marathon and am at the gym almost every day in preparation for both events!
