What drew you to College Possible and why did you apply?
During my final year in college I determined I would like to one day be an academic advisor, due to my own personal non-traditional academic career. When I noticed College Possible would be at a career fair I made sure to attend because the position of campus-based college coach was perfect for me!
What are the highlights of your position?
Some highlights of my position are getting to know each student and interacting with many of them face to face on a weekly basis, the supportive community I am surrounded by at my particular location and the enthusiasm of my students!
What has been a favorite memory from your service with College Possible?
My favorite memory thus far would be hearing my students describe “What a College Coach does” during a Q&A panel conducted for College Possible high school students who were here on a campus visit. They were so genuine and complimentary in their responses, as well as appreciative to have a campus-based college coach, it reminded me of how special an opportunity I have been given by being a part of the College Possible team.
What would you say to someone considering serving with College Possible?
Do it. It will be the most formative and wonderful experience of your life. It has been for me!
