Meet Our Enrollment Counselors and Staff
Jessica MarriottGraduate Enrollment Counselor
As I have traveled to South Korea, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, Argentina, and Brazil, I have discovered wonderful and diverse food. Sushi is one of my favorites. I also love the wonderful coffee of Brazil. I love to listen to music, so you can often find me at a concert listening to a live performance.
Cory JustusUndergraduate Enrollment Counselor
I graduated from Azusa Pacific University in 2008 with a B.A. in Biblical Studies and Sociology. I spent the next three years in Wuhan, China teaching English and serving as a missionary. The best part about what I do now is I get to meet so many wonderful people from all over the world.
Julie KimUndergraduate Enrollment Counselor
I immigrated to San Diego, California from Seoul, Korea when I was just shy of two years old. I had a multicultural upbringing in Southern California and attended UCLA for my bachelor's degree and APU for my master's degree in Educational Counseling. I have always loved befriending people of other cultures, helping people, and traveling the world.
Yuriko BassettAssistant Director of International Enrollment Services
Born and raised in Saitama, Japan, I am a proud “Made in Japan.” I consider the USA as home, but I appreciate foods, cultures, and costumes from different countries. I earned my master’s degree at APU. I’ve also visited Canada, Taiwan, Ethiopia, Germany, Denmark, and Sweden.
Paige PionkowskyManager of Short-Term Programs
I was born and raised in Southern California, and graduated with my B.A. in Psychology from APU. I was recently introduced to Thai Iced Tea and Pho, and they are now two of my favorite things. I have developed some great relationships from short-term programs, and look forward to many more!
Debra NasipakInternational Inquiry Coordinator
Born and raised in the desert of Phoenix, Arizona, I am happy to be close to the California beaches! An APU alumna, it is a pleasure to be a part of bringing international students here. Countries I’ve visited (so far) include England, Belgium, France, and Italy.
