I joined College Coach after working for a number of 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, 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 all recruitment in New England for Cornell’s seven undergraduate colleges. I reviewed all applications 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 from my assigned regions and was a strong advocate for students in an extremely selective admissions process. My most recent position was at Barnard College, where I was responsible for all aspects of the international admission program and recruited in the US and overseas.
