I joined the College Coach team after many years in selective college admissions. I began my career in the foothills of the Adirondacks at Hamilton College, where I coordinated the selection of international and transfer applicants and evaluated prospective student athletes. I most recently worked at Brown University, where in addition to reviewing first-year applications, I conducted the preliminary review of recruited Ivy League student athletes, trained the seasonal admission staff on application evaluation, and reviewed applications to the baccalaureate-MD program. I have also served on national scholarship selection committees for the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, The Gates Scholarship, and the APIA Scholars.
I most likely would not have been so interested and involved in my college process without College Coach and I would recommend it to everyone, it was so helpful.
From my alma mater to the places where I’ve worked, I’ve been drawn to institutions which give students the flexibility and resources to explore their interests and create their own pathways. I found that Bright Horizons College Coach shares that same commitment to empowering students to thrive in college. I’ve learned that even the strongest students can use support. In addition to my role in the admission office at Brown, I served as a faculty advisor guiding students through the first-year experience in the open curriculum and supporting the development of their educational goals. I see the College Coach model as an extension of my work as an advisor. I understand that finding and applying to colleges can be an overwhelming process. I see my role as helping the student manage this process. I’ll often ask, “How do you eat an elephant?” Bite, by bite, by bite. My job is to break down the elephant of the college application process into bite-size pieces.
I played a different sport every season in high school, and I played football in college. I enjoy staying active. In fall, you can catch me officiating high school and college football games. In the winter, I like to snowshoe in the frozen tundra of western New York. Regardless of the season, the best part of my day is playing with my dog, Rocky, a cunucu from Aruba, who loves playing in the snow despite his Caribbean roots.
