I feel grateful and blessed to work in such a great educational atmosphere with such wonderful faculty, staff, and students.

I was born in Busan, South Korea where I studied Japanese and Travel Management in college. I worked extensively in the airline industry. After moving to America,  I worked at Claremont High School in Special Education and supported students with learning difficulties. I also provided needed translation between Korean and English. While in America, I have earned an A.A. in Library Technology and a Bachelor of Science in Applied Management.

My husband, three wonderful sons, and I love to travel and explore nature. We love to go camping and hiking regularly.

As Coordinator of the International Program, my goal is to support our international students and help them to have a great high school experience academically, mentally, and spiritually while preparing them for college.

It is my blessing and joy to see our international students grow mutually with faith and to follow their dreams.
