Lindsay Parise

Lindsay is passionate about transforming students into conscious global citizens through the study abroad experience. She is very excited to be part of the Semester at Sea Field team on the Spring 2016 voyage.  She has held a deep love for travel and diverse cultures since she was a young girl.  Lindsay has had the opportunity to travel through 14 countries and live for extended periods of time in Guatemala, Peru, and Italy. For the last four years, she has worked closely with students with dissabilities as a Lead Residential Counselor at Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation in Greenfield, New Hampshire.

In 2008 she co-founded Soul Projects Guatemala, a non-profit volunteer organization that focused on comparative education, cultural immersion, and service learning.  She has a deep respect and fascination for indigenous cultures and has had the opportunity to work with the Mayans of Guatemala, the Huicholes of Mexico, and the Quechua of Peru.

Lindsay holds a Bachelors of Fine Art from Plymouth State University in Plymouth, New Hampshire.  She is currently persuing her Masters degree in International Education at SIT Graduate Institute in Brattleboro, Vermont.  Lindsay is native of southern New Hampshire and enjoys teaching yoga, painting, and hiking in her spare time.
