To better meet the needs of our growing international student population, International Programs has recently added three new members to the advising team: Robyn Carter, Helen Kwon, and Tara Lunde.

Robyn earned her BA in Communications and Media Management with minors in Political Science and Spanish from San Diego State University and is currently completing her MA in International Education at the School for International Training in Vermont. After earning her undergraduate degree, she spent a year in Spain as a language instructor and then four years as a Peace Corps Community Development Coordinator/English Teacher in Chad and Benin. "I'm very excited to be here, working in such a friendly, supportive environment with such inspirational students," Robyn says.

Tara obtained a BA in International Political Economy and a minor in Spanish at University of Puget Sound and an MA in Student Development Administration at Seattle University. She studied abroad in Argentina as an undergraduate. She has previously worked with Semester at Sea and spent seven years as the Assistant Director of Annual Giving at Seattle University. "I have worked in various areas of higher education for several years now because I'm passionate about helping students achieve, learn and grow through their college experience," Tara says.

Helen attended Wellesley College where she majored in Urban Studies and Education, later completing a Master's degree in Education at Harvard University. She spent a semester of her junior year of college studying abroad in Seoul, South Korea. "I am looking forward to getting to know our students and supporting them to achieve their academic goals here at Green River," Helen says.
