Higher education and admissions captured my nerdy curiosity during my college search. Even then, I enjoyed reading college guidebooks and brochures for fun. As an undergraduate my curiosity met purpose, volunteering with admissions initiatives to recruit underrepresented students; after graduating from Vanderbilt I worked for the Posse Foundation, a college scholarship program. My next admissions positions at Carleton College and Reed College allowed me to manage the schools’ multicultural recruitment initiatives, working closely with community-based organizations and high schools all over the country. As Associate Director at Connecticut College I traveled to Latin America and Caribbean and helped manage the school’s reading and selection process, supporting athletic and international recruitment. In addition to the years I spent at the college level, I also have experience as a high school college counselor, first at Ransom Everglades School in Miami, Florida and then Saint John’s School in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Middle school is a time for academic and extracurricular exploration and fun—and also a time to be aware that some decisions may impact opportunities in high school.
