Director of International Student and Scholar Services
Originally from the great state of Michigan, Lily earned a Bachelor of Science in Communications from Eastern Michigan University and Master of Education in Educational Leadership from the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.
She fell into international education accidentally when a classmate suggested a graduate assistantship in the field. She served as a graduate assistant in the International Student and Scholar Services department at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas for one academic year and developed a fondness for the field.

As director at UST, she serves as the primary designated school official and responsible officer. She is an active member of NAFSA, Trainer Corps, and has served on various training teams from F-1 for Beginners pre-conference workshop and F-1 Intermediate.
