Staff

Joakim Frisk – Executive Director
I am the founder and owner of Bluechip Study USA and attended Plymouth State University, NH and graduated in 1987. I played soccer at Plymouth for four years and we were ranked number one in the country and also reached the Final Four. These were the best years of my life and formed me into the person I am today and helped in my decision to work with international education.  I have been involved in international education for over 30 years. My passion still today is helping young students fulfill their dreams of going abroad to study.  Knowing that one has helped out and changed the lives of over 15 000 students over the years is an awesome feeling.

Pernilla Frisk – General Manager
I have been working within international education since 1995, assisting young people achieving their dreams and goals to study in the United States. It is a great privilege to be part of such a process and see these people grow and develop. In my daily work I guide our students through the admissions part of the process and work closely with the admissions staff at the Colleges. I am also handling all the company administrative business and financials as well as the development of our systems and the process.

Ebba Frisk – Administration Manager
I have traveled a lot around the US as young and I really like the country. Over the past years I have worked off and on at Bluechip while studying in Sweden helping out with office administration and our tours. Since a year back I have been working full time at Bluechip and work mainly with the webpage, social media, administration and our tours. I enjoy the tours especially as I get to meet so many new people from visiting universities and learning all about their universities.
