Rikke Jørgensen

  • JSEP Educator

  • Naestved, Denmark

Rikke is born and raised in Denmark, in Bornholm, which is a small island in the Baltic sea. She moved to the capital when she was 20 and started at the University of Copenhagen, where she studied geology. She spent a semester at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where she studied glaciers. After six years in school, she went to Nuuk, Greenland, to teach and I fell in love with the job after teaching her first class. Now she's on her fifth year of teaching and can’t imagine anything better. After two years in Nuuk, she went back to Denmark, mostly because she missed her family and because she had a tiny animal waiting for me. A small 8-week-old Great Dane, who is now three years old and still a big baby.
