College Admissions Experience, 2013-2017

I started my higher education career in enrollment management as a college admissions counselor, traveling the country visiting high schools and attending college fairs to recruit best-fit students from around the globe. From 2013-2017 I attended 578 visits/fairs in 23 states and Canada representing the University of Connecticut (2013-2015) and the University of California, Riverside (2015-2017).

I have long felt that describing this experience only through percentages, numbers and resume bullet points did not convey the full extent of what I learned in admissions. This led me to map my experience in Google Earth. When I look at these pins, I am not reminded of places in time. What I am reminded of are the diverse perspectives and insights gathered from conversations with key stakeholders and professionals on one topic, higher education. Collectively, these pins best demonstrate the experience and higher education industry knowledge I gained in admissions, experience and knowledge I strive to bring with me as I continue to define my role in the higher education ecosystem to maximize my contribution to solving problems in education.
