“One of the many reasons I love serving at Concordia is the learning environment encourages students to engage in and find joy in their learning. Those working directly with students in and out of the classroom are some of the best in the business. It is a pleasure to combine efforts in a truly student-focused educational environment where all decisions are intentional and based solely on the needs of our students.”
Prior to joining Concordia in July 2016, Mrs. Stephens spent 15 years at Wasatch Academy in Mount Pleasant, UT (USA), an independent coed college preparatory boarding school for grades 8-12, educating 330 students from 40 countries and 25 US states, where she served as Dean of Enrollment Management and Director of International Admissions helping increase the enrollment and open many new international markets.
Mrs. Stephens spent the early part of her career in the health services sector with Intermountain Healthcare in Salt Lake City, UT (USA), having spent 11 years as an Admissions Specialist developing best practices in hospital admission, emergency room, diagnostic imaging, and clinical care.
Originally from Visalia, California (USA), Mrs. Stephens and her husband Randy, who oversees the Boy Scouts of America organization in Hanoi and assists Concordia with substitute teaching opportunities, now call Hanoi their home.
