Jennie's foreign mentor was Associate Professor Chulanee Thianthai at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, Thailand. She specializes in applied anthropology, medical anthropology, and business anthropology. In addition to providing valuable research guidance, Dr. Thianthai sought to "help create an environment where Jennie could gain more knowledge based on her research and learn more about Thai culture." This was her first experience as a foreign mentor. "I really enjoyed my time spent with Jennie and I learned a lot from her research as well," said Dr. Thianthai.
