Before coming to College Coach, I worked for Fordham University, a selective private university, Roger Williams University, a small liberal arts program, and The University of Colorado Boulder, a flagship state institution. These varied experiences broadened my perspective of college admissions across a wide variety of institutional types. I have worked closely with both freshman and transfer applicants. Throughout my time in college admissions, I engaged with a wide variety of students, from future engineers and business students to artists and journalists, and many others. As a former college soccer player, I also enjoyed worked with college athletes. While at Fordham, I was responsible for the transfer application process. I created a more transparent application that was easier to navigate and added more events to help transfers feel more welcome on campus. At Fordham, I was the Gabelli School of Business Honors Program liaison, and at CU, I oversaw the freshman application review process. In this role, I worked closely with representatives from all programs on campus, including the Leeds School of Business, the College of Engineering, and College of Arts and Sciences. I also chaired the admission and merit scholarship committees, which made final decisions on admission and scholarships.
