Kirby Swickard

USAC Program Advisor

Kia Ora! Kirby Swickard is the USAC Study Abroad Advisor for Chico State Study Abroad. Kirby acquired the travel bug at a young age through travels with her family to destinations around the globe. As an undergrad at Chico State, her passion to experience the many offerings of the world lead her to study abroad in Palmerston North, New Zealand through the USAC Program and with a summer-long internship in Australia. Kirby returned to Chico and worked as a Peer Advisor and International Mentor in the Chico Study Abroad Office. Following graduation, Kirby found her way back to the Study Abroad Office to pay it forward by becoming an Advisor, helping students to pursue their dreams of studying internationally. She finds great happiness in providing students with a life-altering experience similar to her time in New Zealand and Australia. Kirby was raised on a cattle ranch in Northern California and sticks closely to her agricultural roots. She also has a strong love for food, the outdoors and time with family and friends.
