Get to know Stashia’s journey
Stashia initially intended to take a gap year in a Spanish speaking country after high school, but abandoned the plan due to safety concerns, limited options, and inadequate guidance. Instead, she hastily chose a university to attend, resulting in a challenging first year & a persistent sense of not being in the ideal educational environment.
After transferring to a more suitable university, Stashia had the opportunity to design an independent customizable program in Spain during her junior year. This transformative “gap semester” sparked her passion for international education, leading her to become the Assistant Director of Study Abroad at Gonzaga University.
She now also serves as the founder of GlobalLife Education Consulting, where she provides educational opportunities and resources to high school and college students worldwide, aiming to offer crucial guidance during the transition from high school to college.
Stashia has lived in South Korea and Spain, and has traveled to 18 countries across three continents for both leisure and work. She shares her life with a partner who is passionate about soccer, and together they have two daughters, one currently in college and the other in high school.
