Meet Kailee!

Kailee Sanchez, On-Site Program Coordinator and Global Advising Center Manager


Kailee graduated from Colorado State University with a BS in Business Administration and Marketing concentration. She completed her Spanish minor while studying abroad in Madrid, Spain. She caught the travel bug in high school while participating in a Spanish summer travel program and later returned to Spain to finish courses for her Spanish minor. She fell in love with Madrid and was able to travel extensively throughout Spain and Europe while living abroad. She is passionate about sharing the wonders of travel, experiencing new cultures and Harry Potter. She was once given a real wand but claims to have never tried to use it.

Kailee looks forward to going to Scotland in June. She will travel with your group during your entire time in Scotland and will be there to support you in every way possible to ensure your program abroad is a safe, meaningful and positive one. Kailee looks forward to meeting and getting to know you soon!

Travel Tip: Talk to the locals! It can feel awkward to just approach locals so when you naturally have someones attention (server at a restaurant, cab driver, asking for directions, etc.) ask them for a tip for a place to eat. This will get you outside of the comfortable tourist spot and you will find the best and most affordable food. Eat Kebabs. Pack light!


Jeanna Brady, Scotland Site Director

Scotland Staff Jeanna Brady Jeanna was born overlooking Loch Ness and grew up in the Highlands of Scotland on the West Coast. She studied in Edinburgh, and after earning a science degree, went on to work as a local and central government officer, often giving lectures to undergraduates in local universities.

“My family has a strong Scottish heritage on one side one Clan MacDougall ( who once owned and controlled vast lands in the West of Scotland, the Clan now ‘impoverished’ nobility ) and on the other a lineage of Cuthberts going back to St. Cuthbert ( whose legacy still influences society today). My Celtic roots give my family our language, music, fun, compassion and culture which continue to this day. Learning and education has been a strong influence in the family over generations.

Like many Scots I enjoy the fantastic landscape here, from great sailing in the West, to off-road motorcycle and skiing in the Highland. The rivers and lochs are second to none for a range of leisure and sports.

I have been fortunate to travel, and love many parts of our world and Europe; however, I choose to reside in Edinburgh for many reasons, including the wonderful architecture, history, the people, the arts , theater, restaurants, pubs, writing, thinking and learning that flourishes here.

I delight in meeting visitors to our city and country, and share with them the real Scottish experience.”

Jeanna will serve as emergency support for your group and may join on some of your excursions!
