My Background

I came to College Coach after working in college access for years. I began my career at High Point University where I read and evaluated thousands of applications from territories across the US, including the greater Midwest and the West Coast. I also trained and supervised student workers and led essay workshops and case studies to educate prospective families on the college admissions process. Dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusion during my time at High Point, I implemented and led the office’s Diversity Recruitment Board, which focused on recruitment, yield, and retention of students from underrepresented communities. While leading the Diversity Recruitment Board, I created the Diversity Mentorship program focusing on building intentional community for students from underrepresented backgrounds.

Some of my favorite pastimes

Coaching and playing lacrosse, traveling, trying new foods, exercising, being outdoors, enjoying fellowship with family and friends
Both of my children used College Coach to help guide them through the college application process…These awesome coaches helped them to decide which colleges were best suited to them and kept them focused on their applications in a timely manner.

Why I joined

I joined College Coach because my passion is to help students and families navigate this very important step in their lives. I thrive on assisting families in realizing that the college application process does not have to be as daunting as it seems. I was fortunate to have family and committed educators who assisted me in this process, and now is my opportunity to help others. In my work as an admissions counselor, I enjoyed being an advocate for students in the college search process, and, in turn, teaching them how to advocate for themselves. My advocacy included guiding students towards their best fit, whether that was their best-fit college or university, major, or simply environment. I love working at College Coach because I am able to combine my experience in admissions with my passion and dedication for helping others achieve their goals.
