My Background

Prior to working at College Coach, I worked in financial aid at selective private colleges, where I developed my expert knowledge of institutional financial aid methodology and needs analysis that these types of institutions use to determine a student’s financial need. These positions allowed me to manage a variety of financial aid programming, including Financial Wellness, Loan Repayment Education, Federal Work Study, and Study Abroad. I’ve worked closely with student groups that support first generation and low-income backgrounds, acting as a liaison to college leadership to support student needs and remove barriers to aid and information for students of all backgrounds. Within the Oregon Association of Financial Aid Administrators, I spent many years leading the state conference, planning and designing educational programming for financial aid professionals. I have also volunteered as a presenter at many local high schools and on my college campuses, and assisted individual families through the aid process and FAFSA nights.
Excellent resource for us as a family and reduced the anxiety and complexity in a stressful and overwhelming application process.

Why I Joined College Coach

I came to College Coach because I’m passionate about counseling and education for students and families, helping them gather all the information and feeling secure in their college decision. I love being able to meet a family where they’re at in their college finance journey, fill in the blanks, and provide the building blocks needed for the next steps.

Some of my favorite pastimes

I love kayaking, backpacking, and generally spending my time outdoors! I’m also an avid traveler, whether to somewhere new in the US or beyond. Some of my favorite places I’ve visited are Hanoi, Vietnam; Mendoza, Argentina; and San Cristóbal de las Casas, México. When I’m not out and about, I love reading, baking, vintage shopping, and sharing meals with my family and friends.
