Joining Salve Regina has allowed Konowicz to return to New England after many years in
the Midwest and on the West Coast. Splitting her childhood between Germany and
Cape Cod has influenced her cheering for the Red Sox, enjoying the outdoors and
excitement to be back near family and friends.
Konowicz has nine years of admissions experience, with six years focused in
international enrollment. Her time in international admissions has allowed her
to meet wonderful students and families, travel extensively and sit on too many
10-hour (or longer) flights. Each experience abroad has helped Konowicz build her
knowledge of international education systems and cultures, influencing her application
reviews and understanding of students' needs, academic successes and goals as
they seek admission to a U.S. university.
Konowicz's role at Salve Regina will build upon her commitment to international enrollment
as she works to continue the legacy of recruiting wonderful international
students to the University. She strongly believes that Salve Regina's academic
programs, faculty, size, tight-knit community and location make it an ideal "home" for any student.
Her Salve Regina colleagues are what first attracted Konowicz to join the team. "The
warmth and friendliness of staff, faculty and students is what makes this
campus special," she says. The location near beautiful beaches and downtown
Newport offers the additional benefit for her hobbies of paddle boarding,
running, shopping and enjoying great restaurants.
