Tess Grossi

I have been a member of the PESLSF Board since November 2011. Serving on the board has allowed me to become more involved in the community and has allowed me to learn more about our immigrant and refugee population. I also try to immerse myself in the community by volunteering as much as I can – I have volunteered each year at ILAP's annual CeleSoirée fundraising event since 2010, I volunteer weekly at the Animal Refuge League in Westbrook and I currently serve on my condo board association, which I have done since 2010.

I have a Bachelors of Science with a concentration in International Business and a Masters in Business Administration from Endicott College. In 2005 I was awarded the Global Citizen Award at Endicott for my involvement in promoting international education on campus. I have worked at The Council on International Educational Exchange (C.I.E.E.) for the past 6 years in the department of Participant Services and I love working to promote international education through supporting participants of our J-1 visa work exchange visitor programs and university study abroad programs.
