history and observations here The fact is that there are vast numbers of unique and powerful international resources and opportunities, many of them created decades ago and some of them brand new.

The paradox is that, even though those exist, they often remain unknown even to those who would pursue, use, and share them best.

The Carpe Global Team

Jay Harris
Founder and Creative Director

An award-winning innovator in global/international education, Jay is a strong advocate of global perspectives and local/global activities.  For many years, he has observed the positive impact of sharing “well-kept secret” information about international resources and opportunities.  The creation of Carpe Global was a natural next step in an eclectic, info-rich career.  

Jay’s experience includes creative collaboration with companies and organizations across several sectors.  His campus and private contract work has included study abroad programs and study tours, international student and scholar support, K-12 global education, community outreach, development assistance (participant training), and campus internationalization in general.  

Jay has a Master’s in international affairs from the George Washington University Elliott School.  He enjoys time with family, Boone the mountain dog, hiking, canoeing, outstanding movies, and the music scene in Asheville, NC. 

Janelle Pangilinan
Associate Director

Coming from an immigrant family, Janelle was raised as a frequent traveler to many countries, and she studied abroad as an undergrad.  Those intercultural experiences translated into a passion for helping others become more globally aware and involved. Janelle was a middle school teacher for several years, with emphasis on curriculum development and global perspectives.  At the post-secondary level, she has been a student adviser, a program director, and an adjunct professor of cultural and global issues.   She  coordinated faculty-led study abroad and personally led study abroad programs on several continents.  In addition to her role with Carpe Global, she does intercultural training programs and curriculum integration to fully integrate education abroad into the student experience. Janelle has a Master’s in Educational Studies from the University of Michigan.  She is  grateful for dogs, dance, and the Harry Potter series.
