Account Management Team
The Account Managers at AAG are your program experts and your culture gurus. They are primarily responsible for managing and expanding business relationships with Host Companies. However, they also create job offer packages, source housing, design recruitment plans, interview participants and assist with in-program support. The team works hard to make sure that your company maximizes the benefits of hosting international students and provides culturally enriching experiences for the students, while remaining in compliance with State Department regulations. They are passionate about what they do, and hope to exude their passion for cultural exchange through you.
Please note if you experience an emergency that involves an international participant you can reach an AAG representative 24 hours/7 days a week through our emergency hotline: 1-866-622-7623.
With great pleasure, we’d like to introduce your Account Management team!

Originally from Texas, Kailee knew at an early age that she was not meant to stay in one place! Her family housed foreign exchange students for 6 years, and after a couple of years of college she had the opportunity to move to England. Several years later, Kailee returned to the U.S. to complete her degree in Management from St. Edwards University and has remained in Austin. Since then, she has worked with hundreds of dogs through Austin Pets Alive and the Austin Animal Center, helped create a worldwide non-profit that assists individuals with rare or undiagnosed disorders, and has had many life-changing events take place. Still passionate for travel and learning about new cultures, Kailee joined AAG and travels outside of the country as much as possible.
