Team Bravo (Forf - Nels)
For the past ten years, I have worked in the Admissions Office at Excelsior College. During that time, I have met thousands of students who have taught me many things. One thing that I find over and over again is that our students are hard workers, dedicated and resilient. They work, take care of their families, serve in the military, overcome hard times, and yet they find the time to pursue a degree. I have such admiration and respect for each and every one of them. I have degrees in Social Work and Health Education, and the two things my degrees have taught me is to listen and provide students with the information they need to make the best decision for them. I would be honored to do that for you.
I am entering my fifteenth year working in higher education and my tenth with Excelsior College and I can honestly say that I have never been more driven as a professional. When you believe in an institution as I believe in Excelsior, it is easy to come to work every day with a smile on your face. I feel motivated knowing that I have helped our learners reach their educational potential. Excelsior College is able to effectively serve various populations because of the flexibility we provide that is ‘paving the way' for the future of higher education.
Many of our students have limited experience with distance or online learning that often causes feelings of trepidation. I make a conscious effort everyday to ease these anxieties in whatever way that I can. One message I commonly convey to my students is that "you are not alone!" Excelsior College has a fantastic staff eager to assist you with all things pertinent to your educational aspirations. The collaborative efforts of Excelsior's staff combined with the values expressed in our institution's mission truly make Excelsior College special.

I am passionate about…
Gaining new experiences. Whether it is traveling Europe, visiting national parks, exploring different cities here in the US, or learning about others' experiences throughout history. Experiences shape who we are as individuals. Learning what others have experienced allows us to further our understanding of the world and times we live in. I begin each day knowing that new experiences is the core of who I am.
Excelsior College is right for you because…
An education can open doors not only professional, but in life as well. I have worked in admissions for a number of years; first as a student worker during my undergraduate experience and now as a young professional. I have seen first hand the impact an education can have.
Excelsior College has many options for students to choose from that will fit their program interest, learning style, and schedule. We offer both online courses and comprehensive exams to earn credit and therefore, each student can customize their education to something that fits their specific needs and goals. The admissions office is here to help you throughout the process to start you on your journey to earning your degree!
