Recent Work & Background

In my position, I work primarily with international students. As the Assistant Director of International Student Services, I assist students in areas such as: the application and admission process, initial arrival of students, placement testing, assigning classes, organizing schedules, as well as advising students on a daily basis. I also interview and hire adjuncts for teaching ESL courses and travel abroad to many different countries working on international recruitment. Finally, I teach in the Intensive Language and Culture Program each semester.
