Enjoys standing at threshold:

“I feel privileged each day I get to work with students and their families because, for most, choosing a college is one of the biggest decisions a young adult faces. Mentoring students and parents makes me feel like I’m making a positive impact in their lives. I helped in the Admission Office during my four years at Wheaton. Once I graduated, I was lucky enough to get a job there. I had incredible mentors, had the opportunity to travel, and loved bringing in the new generations of students.”

Knows preparation is key:

“I was a sociology major and loved working with my professors and doing research.  Analyzing data, interviewing and understanding cultural backgrounds allows me to connect with the students and families on a deeper level.”

Welcomes opportunity to help:

“Working at Wheaton allowed me to fully comprehend the admission and financial aid processes. I support the Wheaton Fund because I want to allow more students to experience the personalized education and the Wheaton way of life.”
