Silvia Esposito was born in Boston, MA and has lived between the United States and Italy all her life. She has worked throughout her career in the fields of counseling and academia, both in the US, at McLean Hospital in Massachusetts and for the Cambridge Public Library, and in Rome, where she coordinated the Rhode Island School of Design’s European Honors Program and taught English writing and literary translation courses at both John Cabot and The American University of Rome. Her own poetry has been published, and her translated poems have appeared in numerous anthologies. Her extensive experience as a counselor, program coordinator, and instructor have stood her in good stead for fulfilling her current role as Director of the Career Development and Internship Program at AUR as well as for teaching the Internship course (INT450). Her wide experience of Italy and the US makes her a valuable asset for students in making informed career decisions and exploiting to the full the opportunities Italy can offer.
