Rebecca Saldivar joined CNDLS in April 2020. She graduated from Georgetown undergrad with a degree in Japanese in 2012, and is delighted to be back at her alma mater in a staff capacity. As Department Administrator, she lends support to all branches of the CNDLS team in a variety of ways, helping to oversee operational activities, support external communications, and manage finances. Outside of work hours, Rebecca sings soprano in the local DC choir the Thomas Circle Singers, and enjoys tabletop and video gaming, making crafts and costumes, writing poetry, and hiking. She misses Tokyo and you can still occasionally find her practicing at the Georgetown Japanese Language Table sessions.
