Andrew Johnson

Originally from Kansas, I spent the first few years after college teaching English outside of the United States, and then when I returned, I began working with international students within the US. It has been an interesting transition to go from Higher Ed to Sales, but the transition was very smooth and Studyportals has a great mission that coincides very well with university missions.

My favorite Studyportals experience was my first few days on the job which also happened to be the NAFSA conference. We had just opened the Boston office, but a few of us were just as green. We studied long and hard about the company and I think we did a pretty good job promoting it to others.

My favorite activities are biking, playing softball, playing soccer and trivia. Interesting fact: I once (thrice actually) appeared on a Korean trivia show. My partner and I won three matches and then they cancelled the entire program. I guess they saved the best for last.
