She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Asian Studies from Vassar College, a Master’s degree in Government (Public Administration) from the University of Pennsylvania, and a Master’s of Fine Arts in creative writing from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

Prior to joining the UMass Amherst community, Jung held a variety of positions in the public and not-for-profit sectors in New York City. She was an Urban Fellow in the Mayor’s Office of Operations (1995-96), an Assistant Vice President at the Economic Development Corporation (1996-97), Special Assistant to the President of the New York Public Library (1997-2000), and Deputy Director of the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts Redevelopment Corporation (2000-2002).

Her work at TEFD focuses primarily on early career teaching and faculty development, including new faculty orientation, the Lilly Fellowship for Teaching Excellence, the Mutual Mentoring Grant Programs, and time management programming. She also teaches an introductory creative writing course, and her fiction has been recognized by Francis Ford Coppola’s Zoetrope: All-Story, Glimmertrain Press, Tin House Magazine, and The Massachusetts Review. Jung’s debut novel, SHELTER, was published in 2016 by Picador.
