Meet the Team
With one exception, each person on our team is a graduate of AssistU (and our exceptional exception also happens to be the only guy on the team!). Although a small team, we are mighty and care deeply about each other, our profession, and helping you. We ask each other to weigh in on different topics throughout the year, some silly, and some serious, so be sure to stop back and see what we have to say! The current question is:
How many languages do you speak, and what language would you love to learn that you don’t currently speak?
One fluently; less so, three more. I would like to learn Spanish.

I can only say that I speak one language fully, although I can speak and understand some French, have a passable restaurant knowledge in Spanish, and know a few ASL signs. I would like to learn to speak Mandarin.
—get to know Heather
These days, I’m only fluent in one. But I used to be fluent in Greek and can hold a basic conversation in Spanish.

Social Media Coordinator
I only speak English but I would love to learn to speak French. I downloaded the Duolingo app and it’s fun to practice!
—get to know Kelly
I speak a smattering of German, a little bit of French and enough Italian to be dangerous in public spaces. When I was a teenager I was rather fascinated by all things Russian, so my answer would have been Russian for a long time. Now, though, I think it would have to be Mandarin – I think it would be truly fascinating to visit China and be able to have conversations freely and fully with the people.
