Abstract
I highlight the personal and professional experiences which contributed to my transformation from a counseling psychologist to an international psychologist. I trace the impact of teaching, conducting research, consulting, and living abroad, primarily in Romania, on my professional identity and, more precisely, on my current work at my university and for the American Psychological Association. I also describe several resources that serve to inform psychology students and faculty about international psychology and the diverse opportunities to become engaged in this specialty. I conclude with an overview of contemporary efforts to internationalize the psychology curriculum.
