My name is Jason and I represent the university mainly in Western Africa and Southeast Asia. It has been a pleasure to meet people from around the world and it still surprises me that I have visited 25 countries in my professional and personal life. Living overseas has enriched my life in so many ways so I hope you are able to have your own unique experiences here in Canada.

Hi! My name is Sandra. I am the International Recruitment Officer for our English Language Institute, East Asia, East Africa and the Americas. As an undergraduate student, I had the pleasure of studying abroad in Sheffield, England, and from then on my passion for travel, meeting new people, and engaging in international education only grew. After completing my Bachelors degree in Environmental and Conservation Science, I decided to take some time and ventured into teaching abroad. I had the pleasure of being an English as a Second Language teacher in South Korea for 4 years. I knew from then on, helping students achieve their goals was what I was meant too do. I am excited to help guide future uLethbridge students on their post-secondary and language learning journey.

I'm the in-country advisor for India, Bangladesh & Srilanka. As a former international student in the UK, I can definitely identify with what it means to travel to another country and explore academic options. I enjoy working with students and their parents, providing guidance to them about the post-secondary study options at ULethbridge. My favourite aspect about travelling is experiencing the new cultures and learning how people within those cultures celebrate and communicate.
