Maggie Patari, Director of Global Learning and International Services
Maggie manages all aspects of Marlboro's international programming; from supporting international students to coordinating study abroad students, and from overseeing internationalization efforts on campus to developing overseas partners and exchange agreements. Prior to Marlboro College, Maggie directed short-term study abroad programs for high school students in Europe, Asia, Oceania, and the Caribbean. Maggie earned her MA in International Education from the SIT Graduate Institute and her BA in Human Geography and International Studies from the University of Wisconsin. In a previous life Maggie lived in (yes, in) a bookstore in the Czech Republic, on an island with no roads in Fiji, and in the rainforest of Dominica, but is thoroughly enjoying putting down roots here in southern Vermont.
Dora Musini, Interim Director of Global Learning and International Services
Dora is thrilled to continue her work at Marlboro by filling in for Maggie and managing all aspects of Marlboro's international programming for the Fall 2018 semester. An international graduate student herself, she recently completed her MA in International Education at the SIT Graduate Institute of Brattleboro.
Dora’s international background includes studying abroad and spending time as an au pair in China, pursuing graduate studies in the US and travelling extensively throughout Europe, her home region. She is also interested in language learning and teaching, and holds a TESOL certification from Centro Espiral Mana, in Costa Rica. She especially loves travelling, cats, chocolate and those quirky presentations that make professionals approachable by telling you what they love.

Alicia Lowden, International Services Assistant
My name is Alicia Lowden and I am a Senior at Marlboro, as well as one of the International Services Assistants. My primary academic focus is Latin American Politics and Literature, and Spanish. My international experience began as a child visiting Mexico with my family, and then some years ago I had the opportunity to go on a trip to Panama and Peru with a group from my high school. It was this experience that motivated me to continue travelling. Through Marlboro I was able to receive my TESOL certificate for English teaching, and then return to Costa Rica for a six month internship. I am more than happy to be a resource for other students hoping to go abroad and have a life-changing experience!
Regina Trevethan, International Services Assistant
Hello everyone! My name is Regina Trevethan and I am so excited to be able to work as a International Services Assistant! I am coming to Marlboro from Kyle, Texas and I’m bringing my own perspective of travel to the office. I want to encourage everyone to step out of their comfort zone and explore options they had not previously considered. I drove from my home in Texas to Vermont before the start of school, getting to visit and explore several major cities and being able to see the beautiful East Coast along the way. I have been a Girl Scout for seven years, and through my troop, we have backpacked New Mexico, ziplined over the Continental Divide in Colorado, and scuba dived Ouachita lake in Arkansas. Our next adventure is to go international on a summer trip to Montego Bay in Jamaica, Cozumel Mexico, and the Grand Cayman islands. With travel, international or across country, we allow ourselves to see more than one perspective of the world we live in, and we get to fully embrace the experiences we share. My travels across the states lead me to Marlboro, where I am excited to study Bio Journalism, and to be advocate for traveling abroad.
