In this role, she manages the school's Global Governance Summer School (a four-decades-old summer study abroad offering), Global Externships, and other academic and research initiatives.

Previously, Quinn was the coordinator of faculty-led study abroad and domestic field study programs at the UGA Office of Global Engagement. She oversaw the development, management and assessment of almost 200 programs annually. Quinn designed and led a variety of professional opportunities for faculty and staff involved in study abroad programming at the university. She presented her findings on best practices for designing inclusive short-term programming at the NAFSA: Association of International Educators 2019 Annual Conference.

Before coming to UGA, Quinn served as the director of the American School Language Institute in Fes, Morocco. She also worked as a freelance curriculum designer, publishing a variety of educational materials including English language facilitator guides in partnership with the U.S. Embassy of Mexico and a girls' empowerment curriculum in partnership with Project Soar Morocco. In fall 2017, Project Soar's empowerment curriculum was awarded a grant from the Middle East Partnership Initiative of the U.S. Department of State.

Quinn graduated from the University of Georgia in 2011 with a double-major in art history and painting. After graduating, she moved to Morocco and worked as a Youth Development volunteer with the U.S. Peace Corps. Her primary areas of focus were capacity building in youth populations, community development and girls' empowerment. In 2015, Quinn completed her Master in Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Her research focused on the role of the arts in language acquisition, and she presented this research at the 2015 HGSE Student Research Conference.
