Director of Student Services

Krista Andberg, LICSW


Krista earned her BA in history at UMASS Amherst and her Master of Social Work at Salem State University. She helps manage state-side operations for Loop Abroad's programs.

A home-body among a family of travelers, Krista has had the opportunity to gain new experiences abroad throughout her life and is a living, breathing example of how traveling outside of your comfort zone is worth it every time. She has lived and traveled throughout Europe, Asia, and Central and South America, though her favorite trip by far was an 800 mile section hike of the Appalachian Trail.

Before joining Loop, Krista was a child and family therapist for at-risk youth and worked as a school-based social worker for children and adolescents with special education needs. Krista believes that one of the most important parts of a young adult's education is exposure to new things and the opportunity for critical thought and self-reflection.
