Amber's Bio

Hellooooo People of the Internet!

My name is Amber, and I am an admissions counselor at the majestic University of Illinois. I focus on working with international undergraduate students and helping them through the admissions process. Believe it or not, that's actually what I studied in school. After a few years studying and traveling, I came back to Central Illinois in 2014 to work in the admissions office.

During my time away from Champaign, I lived in South Korea, Turkey, Mexico, and Ohio. I was able to meet some amazing people and do some amazing things. I am thrilled that it is now my job to help bring people from around the world to campus. I am looking forward to sharing with and learning from each and every one of you.

Bring on the questions!
