Born and raised in rural Pennsylvania, Mattie graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in Chemical Engineering. However, it was her study abroad experiences in Chile and later with Semester at Sea that opened her eyes to the importance of a global education and understanding that led her to jump into the field of International Education. Prior to World Savvy, Mattie worked in the Visas and Compliance office as an international student advisor at a global business school assisting international students with navigating the world of student visas. She has worked at the Institute of International Education with both the Fulbright Scholar Program in Washington, D.C. and here in San Francisco with a program introducing Higher Education Officials from Afghanistan to Higher Ed in the United States. In her spare time, you can find her creating a new painting or out in nature riding her bike, hiking, or skiing
