Chihae Lee

Center Manager

Chihae Lee came to Kings in 2015 with a Master's in Teaching from Montclair State University and a BA in History from Douglass College at Rutgers University.

Previous to her role as Campus Support Coordinator at Kings New Jersey, she spent four years working in residence life — first at EF where she also taught English, and then at Felician College where she held the title of Assistant Director of Residence Life for International Students. Following her time at Felician, Chihae worked for two years in the Newark Public School System as a Middle School Special Education Teacher.

Her combined experience in instruction, residence life, and student services makes her uniquely qualified to take on the role of Center Manager at Kings at UW–Fox Valley.

Tirtha has lived in the Fox Valley region (North-East Wisconsin) for over 10 years, and previously worked with the international student population at UW–Oshkosh where she received a degree in International Studies.

In previous roles as an Application Intake Specialist and Pharmacy Technician, and now as the Campus Support/Housing Coordinator, she enjoys working with international students to make them feel welcome and to provide a supportive environment.

Having always had a passion for education, Kayla finds helping others achieve academic success rewarding. A seasoned traveler, she enjoys learning about other cultures and loves getting to know our international students on campus.

"As the Progression Advisor I help Pathways students make their transfer process successful. I enjoy helping students reach their goals. It is rewarding to see students who have worked hard accomplish their dreams.

Wisconsin is a beautiful state, and I enjoy taking advantage of the gorgeous lakes, rivers, and trails that Wisconsin has to offer."

Tanner Johnson

Academic Affairs Manager

"As Academic Affairs Manager and English Language Instructor with Kings at UW–Fox Valley, I love seeing students make breakthroughs with challenging material. It's very rewarding to see students grasp concepts that they may have struggled with initially, and see them grow in confidence to make further progress.

I started with Kings in June 2018. Previously, I was teaching English and Communication Skills at Milwaukee Area Technical College.

I love the fact that there is so much to do in this area without having to deal with the hassles of a big city. I'm a big fan of the Brewers, so I especially look forward to catching some minor league Timber Rattlers games."
