Meet the Staff

Kathryn Kohut (International Program Manager)

Student Services - International Student Center

I have worked in international education for over 15 years and have worked with students from more than 30 countries. I completed my Bachelor’s degree in International Studies and Russian from the University of the Pacific, and my Master’s in Education from Drexel University. I’ve also been an international student when I studied in St. Petersburg, Russia. I understand how rewarding and challenging it can be to study in a different country. Besides Russia, I lived and worked in Chiba City, Japan for 2 years on the JET Program as an English language teacher. I love travelling, learning foreign languages, playing piano, and enjoying the beaches of Pacifica with my 2 year old daughter and terrier dog. I’m also a foodie and enjoy trying new restaurants in the Bay Area.

Gil Perez (Counselor)

Student Services - Counseling

I have worked with international students by providing academic, transfer, career and personal counseling. I aim to help you plan your studies efficiently and effectively through the counselor-student partnership we build together. I was born and raised in Daly City, CA and currently reside in the East Bay with my two small dogs (a pekingese and maltese/shih tzu). I enjoy long-distance running and discovering new places, things to do and restaurants. I attended City College of San Francisco and earned an Associate Degree for Transfer in Pychology. I then transferred to San Francisco State University (SFSU) and earned a Bachelor Degree in Psychology and a minor in Health Education. SFSU is also where I received my Master Degree in College Counseling.
