I joined IIP in August 2021 as an Advising & Communications Graduate Assistant. I am a current student in the ELPA Global Higher Education MS program. For my undergraduate studies, I double-majored in 3-D Art and Art History with an emphasis in Asian Art, from the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point in 2012.
Prior to my graduate studies, I worked in Kagoshima, Japan as an English teacher in the JET Program for five years, and studied Japanese. My interest in international education and cultural exchange grew during my time in Japan. Since then I have been to over 15 countries in Asia and Europe.
In my free time, I enjoy doing yoga, watching documentaries, and painting watercolors.
