Renee Burgess
Administrative Assistant II

I was inspired to join the ISP team in December 2016 after taking a wonderful class in Environmental Design at Santa Rosa Junior College. I previously lived in Portland, Oregon--having worked for 25 years at the Oregon College of Art and Craft, supporting students in their growth and exploration as they pursued their educational goals. It was my pleasure to build positive relationships with the international students and faculty there, several who have remained good friends.

I love traveling and opening my mind to new cultures; immersing myself in the art, foods, history, languages and values while there. My travels have taken me to Spain, France, Italy, England, Scotland and Wales, as well as spending quite a lot of time in Canada visiting relatives. I plan to take more time in all those places, while moving further afield towards Scandinavia, Portugal and Germany.

Visiting Bhutan one day is a dream of mine.

I look forward to meeting you and learning about your own story when your journey takes you to SRJC.
