Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Nicole is the University Relations Manager for Asia, the U.K. and Ireland, and Oceania. As the primary contact for member institutions in her regions, she works closely with coordinators to promote mobility, develop new programs and facilitate strategic initiatives, manage exchange numbers, and uphold membership standards. Nicole earned her B.A. Cum Laude in East Asian Studies at Agnes Scott College, participating in two Summer study abroad programs in Japan along the way. She then taught English as a Foreign Language in suburban Japan for three years as a member of the JET Program. Deeply inspired by her experience on JET, she applied to the University of Pennsylvania to pursue graduate studies in Education and completed her M.S.Ed. in Intercultural Communication in 2015. Most recently, Nicole was the Senior Program Coordinator at an ISEP member institution and served on the ISEP Council of Advisors. At any given time, Nicole is usually found with at least one cat on her lap. She enjoys reading, attempting to write, playing video games with her husband, and singing her lungs out at karaoke.
