Group Leaders for HHS 350 Bali:

Amanda Chamberlain

Amanda is a study abroad advisor for faculty-led programs at SDSU.  She is also a current SDSU student, completing her Masters of Business Administration.  During her time as an undergrad at UC San Diego, she participated in a spring break service program in Honduras and a semester-long study abroad program at one of the top universities in Nairobi, Kenya. These experiences greatly influenced her path after graduation, as she saw the amazing value that study abroad added to her education and felt the need to encourage more students to take advantage of the opportunity.

Since then, Amanda has worked with universities on the West Coast to send their students abroad and also advised students from all over the country who were interested in studying in Kenya and Tanzania.  While at SDSU, she has helped hundreds of students participate in many different experiences around the world.  Her personal travels include England, Scotland, Ireland, Turkey, Tanzania, Mexico, and Cuba.  When not at work, she enjoys hiking with her dog Winston, snorkeling, and binge-watching the latest shows on Netflix.
