Sheree has had a lifelong love affair with international travel. At the young age of 15, she departed on her first solo trip abroad to Mexico and never looked back. As a young adult, she spent many summers studying Spanish while living with local families in Costa Rica. Years later, in grad school, she designed and executed study abroad programs for fellow students. What started as a professional challenge opened the door to her biggest passion: creating and directing immersive travel experiences for others.
At the age of 24, upon completion of her master's degree in Spanish Literature and Second Language Acquisition, Sheree started her career as a world language educator at a college preparatory in Miami, Florida. Within her first year of teaching, she was creating and directing study abroad programs in Costa Rica and Spain which then led to her first bilateral academic exchange program between Miami and Aix--en-Provence, France.
Eight years later, in search of new professional challenges, Sheree transitioned from education to the private sector where she was recruited to restructure and enhance a successful surgery center in South Florida. The experience that she gained and the network of global contacts that she made were invaluable.
Years later, with a strong desire to get off “the grid”, Sheree resigned from her position and embarked on an ambitious five continent, 14-month solo sojourn around the globe. A few months after her return, Immersa Global was born.
Now as the creative brain behind Immersa Global, Sheree spends over half the year visiting different programs sites abroad, networking with international colleagues and laying the groundwork for new immersion experiences.
