Office: International Center, Room 207
In addition to teaching Chinese language classes in the Department of Modern Languages, Anthropology, and Geography (former Department of Global Cultures and Languages), Chinese Civilization in the Department of History, I serve as an International Counselor in the Office of International Education and Services. I team up with other staff in the office to provide assistance to international students and scholars in all areas, from academic and personal counseling to advising and orienting the students about our campus and community. I also serve as a study abroad advisor to all SEMO students to assist them apply for study abroad programs overseas. I also take SEMO students for a short-term study abroad trip to Taiwan through SEMO study abroad programs.
I like the friendly collegial community.
I was believed to have hollow legs!
Asia is still my favorite place to travel. Asian food is my one weakness.
I encourage SEMO students to be open-minded and explore the world and other cultures. For international students, explore the world through Cape Girardeau. International students can meet domestic students as well as other international students at SEMO. For domestic students, come to meet our international students. They bring the world to SEMO, and to you. As Edgar H. Schein said, “Most of my important lessons about life have come from recognizing how others from a different culture view things”. The cross-cultural encounter can happen right here at SEMO as a SEMO student.
