My Background

I joined College Coach as part of the college financing team from the education finance department of Citizens Bank. Before my stint with Citizens, I worked as an Assistant Director of Financial Aid at Southern New Hampshire University. I've spent most of my professional career working in financial aid and have assisted traditional undergraduate, adult learners and master’s degree students in financing their educations. I have a master’s degree in business education, a bachelor’s degree in hotel and restaurant management, and an associate’s degree in culinary arts.
EVERY aspect...was made easier with College Coach...The application process, considered tedious and exhausting by parents I have spoken with, was organized and enjoyable...A parent can't ask for anything more.

Why I Joined College Coach

I joined College Coach in 2008 right before the student loan lender crisis. I saw what was happening in the industry at that time and saw a change coming in the way educational loans were going to work. I saw the opportunity with College Coach and thought that it provided a great benefit for families overwhelmed with the college finance process.
