Staff of International Student Services


Linda Yazdani, Director of International Student Services

Welcome to Red Rocks! International living is a wonderful way to expand our thinking and acceptance of each other. My whole life has been spent in an international environment.

I am a Canadian who grew up in Russia, Finland, and England. I have a Bachelor of Science in linguistics and a Masters Degree in business. The ability to learn is one of our greatest gifts, so I am always studying something. I am looking forward to meeting you.
