Team Charlie (Nelt - Z)
The most rewarding aspect of my job as an admissions counselor is working with students to achieve their goals. During my conversations with future students, I've learned that many are unsure distance learning is right for them and most have an understandable level of anxiety about completing their degree. Easing those fears and providing these students with the information they need to make the right educational choice is always a rewarding experience.
Plus, it really is a privilege to work somewhere that not only values the people it serves, but is actively trying to help them better their lives. The whole mission of Excelsior College is to help Adult Learners complete their degree so they can better their current position and advance in their chosen profession. That is why I truly believe in what the College stands for and the value of what it provides to thousands of students across the country and around the world.

Excelsior College believes in higher education for adult learners who desire an affordable and accessible degree. We understand that as an adult learner, earning a degree can be tough without the necessary tools and guidance to ensure your success. Excelsior College is a distant learning institution that provides a plethora of resources to anyone seeking an accredited degree including academic advising, free online tutoring, virtual library, bookstore, career center, and writing services. It is our intention that through your efforts and the support we provide, our students improve their critical thinking skills and are better equipped to make informed decisions and progress in their careers. If you are an adult learner who is hesitant or unsure about finishing your degree, give our Admissions office a call! We will work with you and make sure you have all the support you need.
In my free time, I love to spend time with my family and friends and travel the world with them at any opportunity. The best and memorable moments are those that you share and enjoy together.

In my spare time I like to be doing something creative. Whether I am painting a picture or painting a house, I have to be busy. "Idle hands make for idle minds" seems to sum up my life. I rarely have a moment when I am not doing or planning something and that's the way I like it!
I feel like I can relate to the Excelsior College student. I was a Navy wife for almost ten years and moved a few times during that period making it difficult to begin something, knowing that you may not be there long enough to finish it. I am proud to work for a college that takes the needs of its military students seriously and will work with them and their families to achieve their educational goals.
I have raised three children; the last will go off to college this fall. My experience as a mother is a full-time job in and of itself. The typical Excelsior College student wears many hats, juggling family and work responsibilities and they are never idle in pursuit of their educational goals. I am happy that I can be here to assist students at Excelsior and hopefully I bring along an understanding of what they wish to accomplish.
