Registrar, Metropolitan Community College

I have been the Registrar at Metropolitan Community College (MCC) in Omaha, NE since 2011. Prior to that, I worked in the President's office for six years. Working in higher education was by sheer accident. After I graduated from my alma mater, the University of North Dakota, I never dreamt that I would ever return as a staff, let alone pursue a higher-level position at another institution. It was evident I found my true calling while working at MCC! I have been a member of AACRAO since becoming Registrar and have served a term on the Community College Issues Committee. I am also an active member of NACRAO, having previously served on its board and I continue to serve on a committee.

Her statement for AACRAO's Asian-American and Pacific Islander Caucus: "I became a member of the AAPI Caucus because I feel that I can positively contribute to its growth and advocacy, especially in light of the recent anti-Asian sentiments and acts against the community. A community that I am a part of, as I am half-Korean."
