In an effort to bring international educators in North Dakota together, my role is to serve as a liaison between NAFSA and institutions across our state. Despite our various roles within international iducation, what bring us together is our shared goal of making internationalization a priority across North Dakota. My hope is to facilitate a strong network that can provide guidance and support to professionals in our area. I am here to make sure everyone is informed of the resources available through NAFSA which include conferences, trainings, and many other opportunities.

Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions regarding NAFSA membership, conference details, or how you can get involved with NAFSA.
