Candidate Statement:

As one of the Media Communications Chairs for the past two years, I’ve been so lucky to work with four amazing and talented people-Julie Marlatt, Kevin Coy, Dave Shafron and Dan Saavedra. I have learned so much from these individuals, and they’ve helped me to grow as a person and as a professional within this field. We have been able to create a new format for the newsletter, The Admission Essay, and give IACAC members a chance to write about all the great things that happen throughout the year in this organization. I feel so lucky and proud of The Admission Essay, and even more thrilled to be nominated to serve as the Secretary of IACAC. It’s an honor and privilege to be given this opportunity, and I only hope I’ll be able to give due diligence as Robert Yerkan has done these past two years. Being able to give back to the organization that has helped me become the professional I am today is what I had hoped to do from the beginning, as IACAC has provided me opportunities to learn, grow and understand more fully how to best serve students and their needs. IACAC is an organization with a storied past and a bright future. I feel honored and humbled to be a part of it!
