Department Coordinator

Markim Hall, 204

My main duties at the Center for Study Away are providing administrative and clerical support to the overall Center for Study Away mission and supervising student workers.

A native of Latvia, I have lived in the United States since 2002. I received a B.S. in Pedagogy from Latvia University. Most of my previous employment has been in the field of education; I was a teacher of Latvian language and literature for K 5-12 students. For five years I worked for the US Peace Corps program in Latvia in the capacities of language teacher, language program coordinator, resource center manager, and program manager. For nearly three years I worked for Meld, a national not-for-profit organization that provides resources for parents.

As parent of two bi-lingual children, I participate in the activities of Latvian Saturday school, and this year is serving as a co-principal of the school.
