Andres Montano Leal
Program Manager International Education
Hello. Mucho gusto!
My name is Andres Montano Leal, and I was born in Bogota, Colombia. I have been Green River College’s IPEL team since 2023. I immigrated to the U.S. from Colombia in 2022 and I have a Bachelor’s degree in Finances and International Trade from La Salle University, Colombia.
Ever since I had my own life-changing study abroad experience in Canada in 2015, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in International Education and work in a multicultural environment that would allow me to support students to fulfil their dreams! I like to think of myself as an ambassador of international students since I love to share my experience having done study abroad, being a Latino in the US, and having worked for international relations and education programs ever since I finished my degree.
I feel proud to be part of the IPEL team working in Study Abroad and International Short-term Programs. I really enjoy supporting students with their academic and international goals in different countries.
In my free time, I enjoy playing soccer, traveling, drinking good coffee, and doing BBQs with friends and family.
