About Me

I am the Director of International Student Admissions & Programs at Colorado Mesa University. Prior to my career in international education, I taught as an adjunct professor and served in the U.S. Peace Corps. I hold two M.A. degrees from Colorado State University in English (TESL/TEFL) & Spanish. While at CMU, international student enrollment has more than doubled. My main areas of focus include campus internationalization, increased participation in study abroad, and developing extensive international student programming and services.
