Senior Director of Graduate Enrollment Management
International (North Asia)
I have spent my life living and traveling all over the world. I was born in Los Angeles, California and spent my teenage years in central Texas, followed by 13 years in Canberra, Australia, and for the last seven years have been in Massachusetts. I have traveled to more than 30 countries around the world and I look forward to the next new place I can add to that list. My passion is learning about cultures, countries, environments, politics, and food. When I was younger I found “learning” to be boring, but when I discovered my passion I realized learning can be exciting and eye-opening. That is one reason I decided on a career in higher education over 15 years ago: to help others find and learn about their passions, especially in the place I now call home, Massachusetts!
Associate Director of Graduate Admissions
International (China, Mongolia, Canada)
I’m from an ancient city in China called Jingzhou. I earned my bachelor’s degree from Renmin University of China and spent two years in Beijing, working in consulting for renewable energy projects, before coming to the U.S. After earning my master’s degree in environmental science and policy at Clark, I started working in higher education. I found my passion for international collaboration while working on a partnership program with Peking University for the Albright Institute at Wellesley College, and at Wellesley’s Slater International Center I provided immigration and on-campus support to international students. At Clark, my focus is also on international students, which I enjoy a lot. Out of work, I like cooking and exploring the world with my young daughter.
Assistant Director, Domestic Recruitment
I am New England born and bred, having grown up right outside of Worcester. I earned a degree in History and Afro American Studies from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I truly loved my studies which stirred up within me a passion, and curiosity, for people and cultures around the world. After I graduated, I began to grasp the unique learning opportunities that come with travel. Experiencing foods, landscapes, and traditions firsthand is unbeatable. Two of my favorite travel adventures were to Turkey and Uganda. In my current role at Clark, I enjoy working with domestic students as they explore their next step in life. One of my favorite things to do in my spare time is explore Worcester. The city is unique and diverse, with so much to offer — particularly when it comes to all the great restaurants!
Assistant Director, International Recruitment
International (Middle East, India, South Asia)
I am originally a Midwesterner as I was born in Omaha, Nebraska and grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. From the Midwest I headed to the South where I attended the University of South Carolina and received my bachelors in Finance and Management. After living in the Carolinas for a few years and working in the business world, I decided to take a different career path. I moved to Thailand to teach English to students of all ages. After being in Thailand for a while I moved to Madrid to continue teaching ESL. From Spain I moved to Worcester, making it my home. I have spent the past few years eating my way through all of the great new restaurants that keep popping up. I’m thrilled to be part of Clark University’s graduate admissions team and am eager to begin traveling and making new connections!
Assistant Director, International Recruitment
International (Africa, Europe, LATAM, Southeast Asia)
I am a New Englander at heart, having spent the first 15 years of my life in Connecticut. However, I have a soft spot for the Midwest after living in Indiana throughout secondary school and college. I received my bachelor’s degree from Indiana University in Kinesiology, where I studied abroad in Melbourne, Australia before serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Eswatini, Africa. These experiences reinforced my love for travel and finding genuine connections with new people! Upon returning to the states I began working with refugees in international education in Worcester, MA, before securing a position in the American Language and Culture Institute at Clark in 2019. Since then I have made the transition into Graduate Admissions where I cannot wait to share what I love about Clark University with students across the globe! When I’m not at Clark you can find me kayaking, hiking, teaching yoga, playing volleyball, or following one of my many creative pursuits.
Northern China (based in China)
I’m from Beijing, the capital of China. I received my bachelor’s degree in Instructional Technology and master’s degree in Applied Linguistics from the Capital Normal University. I started in the field of higher education as a teacher in both Middlebury College and in one of the largest study-abroad programs in the U.S. After returning to China, I realized my passion has always been in the field of international higher education. Here at Clark, I work with our amazing team and enjoy meeting with new Clarkies around China and being the bridge between them and Clark.
Central/Southern China (based in China)
I was born and raised in Fuzhou, Fujian. I received my bachelor’s degree in Accounting and an MBA from Emporia State University in the U.S. After graduating, I worked as China Initiatives Coordinator at my alma mater, where I started my career as an international recruiter in the higher education field. My work experience in both public and private universities allows me to have a strong understanding of the higher education system in the U.S. Here at Clark, my role is to help our Chinese students learn more about Clark University and walk them through the admission process. Outside of work I enjoy learning a new dialect or a new language.
India (based in India)
I love to travel and that’s what has driven me to work in the international education sector. In a career spanning more than a decade, I have worked with international education providers like The Princeton Review, IDP and Navitas. Massachusetts has a special place in my heart because it was the first place I visited in the U.S. I am fascinated with the educational quality and diversity of Clark University, and am excited to be part of the Graduate Admissions team.
