As a School Supply and Staffing Specialist, I assist in the Ed Staffing Department as a Candidate Registrar and in the School Supply Department as an Educational Account Representative. In Ed Staffing, my main task is to help candidates in all aspects of their quest to find teaching and administrative positions overseas. Whether that be by processing candidates and helping build an ISS Profile that is as complete and outstanding as possible, answering the many questions candidates have along the way, helping out at the IRC events, or sending out candidate dossiers to schools to start those connections to try to ensure a perfect fit, I am always willing and eager to provide the best quality customer service that I can. In the School Supply Department, my main tasks are to process thousands of orders for school supplies from various schools overseas and coordinate the shipping of these supplies to the schools. It’s truly exciting for me to be able to help out both teachers and students, and I’m glad I have the opportunity to do so on a daily basis.
The way that ISS has impacted so many lives all around the world is absolutely awe-inspiring to me; it’s almost unfathomable to think about how much ISS has done to help teachers and students and improve the world of overseas education since 1955.
I’ve always been intrigued by education, international relations, travelling and foreign languages. Throughout my educational career, I’ve taken 10 years of Spanish, 4 years of French, and one year each of Latin, German, and Italian. Though my degree ultimately ended up being an English degree, I have always enjoyed learning about the world around me, and my language experience comes in handy quite often. I’ve travelled to 11 different countries and 40 out of 50 U.S. states. Outside of work, I enjoy biking, hiking, camping, canoeing, gardening, and anything outdoorsy.
