Director, National and Global Scholarships Advising
LeAnn is OSU's first full-time director for nationally competitive scholarships starting in June 2015. She is passionate about supporting the aspirations of all candidates: undergraduate, graduate, and alumni, and providing highly personalized advising. When you meet with LeAnn, you will notice she asks a lot of questions: she likes advising appointments to be lively and interactive and she always hopes you’ll leave with things to think about that you’d never even considered. LeAnn is a graduate of the College Student Services Administration master’s program at OSU where she specialized in student development and success through engagement in nationally competitive scholarship applications.
Before inaugurating the National and Global Scholarships Advising office at OSU, LeAnn was an education abroad and Fulbright Program advisor with OSU GO. She has had a long career in International Education including positions in both the US and abroad. She was previously Coordinator of the Overseas Resource Center at Stanford University, Group Leader for educational travel programs in Cuba and Italy, and she earned her undergraduate degree and worked in International Programs at San Francisco State University. LeAnn intends to never stop learning or traveling. In her free time, she enjoys scuba diving, yoga, reading, drawing, writing, and spontaneous day trips with her daughter and Boston Terrier.

As a recent graduate and Fulbright alumna herself, she understands how challenging, valuable, and transformative the scholarship application process is. She is committed to supporting and advising students as they make their way through this process. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, reading, drinking tea, and spending quality time with friends and family.
