Associate Director, Admissions Operations at the University of Idaho

Karee is the 2023-2024 VP for International Education.

She was hired as the international admission processor for the University of Idaho in May 2006. Through my position at the University of Idaho, she has been given the opportunity to work with colleagues around the world though organizations like AACRAO, NAFSA: Association for International Educators Member, TAICEP: Association for International Credential Evaluation Professionals Member, and AICE: Association of International Credential Evaluators, Inc. 

Most of her volunteer work with AACRAO has been with the professional activities committees. She have sought out topics for annual meeting sessions, webinars, international training offerings that are needed to be successful in our day-to-day jobs on our campuses.

This volunteer work has enriched her professional life and passion for international education. Starting in 2010, Karee served as a member for the International Admissions Professional Activities Committee and appointed to Chair in 2011. While serving as Chair, she wanted to get more involved and asked to join the AACRAO Program Committee. Karee served as Program Committee Coordinator for Group 2: International Education for four years. She served on the Annual Meeting Program Committee as Vice Chair in 2018 and served as Chair of the 2019 Annual Meeting. 

Karee has been awarded several AACRAO awards in recognition of her strong willingness and desire to volunteer. She was awarded the Emerging Leader Award in 2016, Thomas A. Bilger Award in 2019, and most recently the Award for Excellence in International Education in 2020.

If I am elected as a Vice President of International Education and serve on the Board of Directors, I will collaborate with AACRAO membership to fulfill AACRAO’s mission and vision.
