I joined College Coach after working for many years in college admissions at various institutions. I began my career at my alma mater, Bowdoin College, where I was in charge of applications from northern California, Colorado, Texas, Georgia, and the New England states, as well as the transfer admission program. While I was an associate director of admission at Cornell, I oversaw recruitment in New England for all seven of Cornell’s undergraduate colleges. I reviewed every application that came from the region and sat on the selection committees in the College of Engineering and the College of Architecture, Art and Planning. At Harvard, I personally evaluated every application for Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and international territories. I enjoyed being a strong advocate for students in an extremely selective admissions process. My most recent position was senior associate dean at Barnard College, where I was responsible for all aspects of the international admission program. I recruited in the US, Europe, and Asia.
