Nicole Paulson Washko (2)

Director, Admissions & Marketing

Nicole joined The British School of Beijing, Shunyi in August 2013 joining her children who have been attending BSB Primary since 2011. Nicole graduated from Oklahoma City University and acheived a certificate from Shanghai  Jiao Tong University Mandarin Department. 

I moved to China in 1998 as a student, thinking that I would have a brief China experience for a year and then go back home, which simply didn't happen! After finishing a year studying Mandarin and teaching English part time, I entered the world of Real Estate in a Marketing role and quickly moved into Expatriate Relocation. I spent 14 years working for 2 different American companies as a General Manager, then Regional VP from company license establishment, expanding branches, customer relations, sales, and compliance. This took me from Shanghai to Beijing, back to Shanghai where my two daughters were born, and then onto Singapore. 

My husband's role as Athletic Director at BSB Shunyi brought us back to Beijing and eventually into my current role at the school. I am a proud parent as well as proud team member of BSB, where I feel strongly is my extended family. I hope everyone who visits our school feels as well.
