I’ve served on the admissions committee at the Yale School of Management, worked as an admissions counselor at the American University of Paris, and acted as the admissions manager for the New School of Architecture and Design. My varied admissions background has given me excellent insight into the differences in demands at various higher education institutions.
I’ve been working in higher education for over 12 years and have nearly 6 years of extensive experience working for Columbia University as an advisor to undergraduate and graduate students applying for both prestigious fellowships and study abroad opportunities. While at Columbia, I have been able to obtain a Masters in Higher and Postsecondary Education focusing on Organization and Leadership Development from Teacher’s College. It was during my undergraduate years at Middlebury College that I fell in love with campus communities and knew one day I would devote my professional career to higher education. Married to a veteran, I have also devoted time to helping veterans take advantage of the GI bill to pursue their own educational goals beyond the military. In working closely with varied populations of students through the years, I have most enjoyed helping students and applicants of all backgrounds realize and then pursue their unique goals.
Although I grew up in the south, I have now spent more time in New York City than any other place. I love the hustle and bustle of the city and its lively culture. But most importantly, I love spending time with my family, exploring the outdoors, trying new recipes, and venturing to new and old destinations.
