Director for International Career Development
Ms. Riedel joined GACC California in the summer of 2004 and serves as the Director for International Career Development. Ms. Riedel has a longstanding experience and intensive knowledge in the field of U.S. cultural exchange and international deployment. Further, she has an expertise in the field of US visa regulations and oversees all visa and cultural exchange matters.
Over the last 10 years, Jana and her team have supported more than 4,000 students and young professionals on their way to the U.S. Due to the fast developing environment of J-1 visa rules and regulations her position demands a great deal of know-how.
Foreign cultures and languages have always been her passion. During her studies in Business Administration and Tourism she gained international experience in the U.S., UK and France. She enjoys working with great colleagues (in Leipzig and San Diego) to allow applicants to experience another culture and values. Jana is fluent in English, French and German (native language).
