Jennifer first studied abroad at age 14 and was hooked immediately. She has more than 16 years’ experience across a wide range of International Education areas, primarily in increasing student participation, business/program development, partnerships, and training. She has worked for a program provider, an embassy, as an international recruiter/agent and at The University of Melbourne in Australia. She is the Region III Coach for the NAFSA Academy for International Education Class 14 and will return as a Coach for Class 15. She is a member of NAFSA Trainer Corps. She attributes one of her greatest professional accomplishments (and headaches!) to creating a US Financial Aid office serving 33 foreign universities. She has a B.S. in Biology/Biochemistry and an M.S. in Communication Management, both from Colorado State University. Jennifer is an Up With People alumna, interested in social justice issues, volunteering abroad, is a certified barista, loves the outdoors, and encourages anyone to bungee jump when they get the chance.
