InGenius Prep

I am a former Assistant Dean of Admissions at Swarthmore College where I served as Regional Director for applicants from NYC, Upstate NY, Northern California, and the Midwest.

My first job in admissions, however, was working as a senior interviewer at my undergraduate institution, Kenyon College. In each admissions role I’ve had, I’ve most enjoyed meeting students and getting to know their educational aspirations. I care deeply about increasing access to higher education for students of underrepresented backgrounds and using my former roles in admissions work to advocate for students who were great fits to the college. I have my Master’s degree in Education from the University of Pennsylvania with a concentration in Education, Culture, and Society.

In my spare time, I enjoy cooking healthy foods, practicing yoga, reading and spending time with my husband and toddler!
