Kathrine Colpaert

International Marketing and Recruitment

Education: MA

Call me “Katie.” I’m from Michigan, and I work in international education because studying and living abroad has had a profound impact on my life, and I believe in the power it has to transform people into global citizens. I received my Bachelor’s degree in French from Michigan State University, where I study abroad twice, once in France and once in Senegal. My Master’s degree is in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) from St. Cloud State University. I taught for one year in France and another year in Saudi Arabia, and I’ve also had the great privilege to work and travel in China, India, Brazil, Slovakia, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Spain, Canada, England, Scotland, and Bahrain. I hope to continue spreading the passion for studying abroad by helping connect international students to UM-Flint. Go blue!
