Lyndsi Jones

Communications and Outreach Coordinator

Lyndsi grew up in towns across Maryland, but settled in Baltimore while earning her BA in Mass Communication at Towson University. During her time at Towson, she spent a semester abroad in Leeds, England, and discovered a passion for international education. As a first-generation college student, she recognized the impact spending time abroad can have on underrepresented student populations.

Upon her return to the U.S., she began working in the Towson Study Abroad Office. Her conversations with the students and staff in the office convinced her that she wanted to study international education further, and after graduation, she began working towards her MA in International Higher Education at the George Washington University. At GWU, her research focuses on students with mental illness, as well as first-generation students, in study abroad.

Prior to joining FEA, Lyndsi worked as a Program Coordinator in Johns Hopkins University’s Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, and interned at the Fund for Education Abroad.
