Prior to the inception of Campus to Career Crossroads, I worked for a single institute in the post-secondary admissions profession for over fourteen years. There are countless intangible things to be learned from visiting scores of high schools each year, partnering with high school counselors, meeting hundreds of families, and working in an executive admissions leadership position. My progressive admissions track taught me so many things about working with students and families while at the same time understanding the complex financial aid world that no other training method could. As I worked through my career, I became increasingly aware of the lack of fundamental information that families have about the college process, financing a college education, and most importantly the need for a customized planning guide that comprehensively covers both pre and post college graduation.
Taking my vast experience in college admissions, I advanced on to the retained executive search industry where I worked for over four years with a much respected boutique firm. This segment of my career provided me with extensive career management knowledge including executive interview skills, writing lengthy candidate summaries which highlighted their unique strengths, and extensive LinkedIn knowledge. I performed searches throughout the country for positions in various industries such as international construction companies, healthcare, and higher education. I was successful in placing multiple candidates for hire with prominent higher education clients at Columbia University, Bucknell University, and Washington University School of Medicine, to name a few.
Along with my attained knowledge and broad experience, I had the passion and vision to share my talents and skills with students, families, and professionals in order to help them successfully navigate the complex college and career journey. I knew for each to be successful there had to be a comprehensive plan tailored to meet each individual need. Relying on my expertise and encouragement from fellow colleagues in industry and the high school counseling profession, I turned my vision into a successful reality.
A sincere thank you to my many colleagues and organization affiliates for their continued support and recognition of the important college to career services which I provide.
