I am a former Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions at UNC-Chapel Hill. During my time there, I met with hundreds of students and families and read and made decisions on over 3,500 applications.
A little over a decade ago I gained admission into my dream school, Harvard College. I graduated from Harvard with a B.A. in Psychology and went straight to work doing marketing and corporate strategy in the finance industry, where I stayed for the next five years. During this time, I also served as an alumna interviewer for Harvard’s undergraduate admissions office.
I later returned to school for my Master of Education (M.Ed.) in School Counseling at UNC-Chapel Hill. It was there that I honed my counseling skills and learned how to guide my students in a personalized manner. Applying to college can be intimidating, but I enjoy so much taking students through the process and making it more manageable and – dare I say it – even fun! There are few things as exciting to a young person as gaining admission to one’s dream school.
After finishing my Master’s at UNC Chapel Hill, it was a natural transition to working in their admissions office. I eventually left my job at UNC-Chapel Hill to become a stay-at-home-Mom and have since stayed active in the admissions world by providing assistance to students applying to prestigious colleges. In my free time, I love cooking, baking, running, playing soccer, and having fun with my husband and three young daughters.
