I am the former Associate Dean of Admissions and Operations at the University of Pennsylvania. At UPenn, I oversaw over 20 admissions officers, served as special advisor to the Dean, and worked as the lead athletics and Ivy League liaison. Every year, I reviewed thousands of applications and admissions decisions.
When I first walked into College Hall at Penn, I did not know just how complex the application process really was. I quickly came to live and breathe undergraduate admissions. I especially loved my interactions with applicants and their parents. I loved seeing students relax a little about their college application when I answered their questions and helped them during this stressful procedure.
Since leaving Penn, I have enjoyed caring for my grandchildren and being involved with our local school board.
