Many folks chose Admissions as a job when they graduate college, however few chose to continue in the industry as a career. I believe in life long learning and the importance of educating prospective students and family about post-secondary education. Therefore, I have chose to make a successful continued career in Admissions. IACAC is a highly respected organization that values the Admission Industry and believes in continued progress. I feel that becoming a part of the Executive Board, especially in the Professional Development capacity will give me the opportunity to contribute growth and progress as visioned by IACAC. I am very excited to be considered for this position, and am looking forward to the potential opportunity of working with so many wonderful people across the state.
