  • Content Creator/ All things I.T

    Seana Cooke

    A native Dubliner, Seana Cooke is the creator of our content, manages all things I.T and oversees the gap year program. Having spent time abroad playing professional football (soccer, for the Americans in the house), she knows what it’s like to live abroad. Coupled with her local knowledge, this makes her the perfect individual to help those recently graduated from college spend a year in Ireland. Within the office, she gets stuff done, her radiant personality a welcome addition to our team. Besides football, she also loves donuts, Airbnb, and avocados (not necessarily in that order).
