Rachael Capuano, CISabroad On-Site Program Coordinator

Originally from upstate New York, Rachael experienced her first culture shock when she moved to Vancouver, Washington as a teenager. Although she loved the Pacific Northwest, her desire to return to the East Coast brought her to Western New England University, where she graduated with a BA in International Politics and Spanish culture. Her first study abroad experience was to Valladolid, Spain, where she spent two months in high school learning the language and eating tapas. Her junior year of college, Rachael returned to Spain, where she lived in Alicante for a semester and spent her weekends exploring the beautiful European cities. Her passion for travel have taken her to places such as Morocco, British Columbia, Mexico, and her favorite destination, Czech Republic. Rachael is an avid coffee drinker, dog-enthusiast, and chocoholic. In her free time, she loves camping, kayaking with her Boston Terrier, Milo, and dreaming of her next adventure overseas. One day Rachael hopes to return to Spain to teach English, and share a dance with Derek Jeter (go Yankees!).
