What are your responsibilities as an enrollment coach?
I assist students with registration, collect documents for admissions and assist with financial aid, among many other things. It is also always very important to me that I provide the best customer service.
What inspired you to work in higher education?
Being able to see others succeed. I was an adjunct instructor before I became an enrollment coach, and it was a great feeling to see students graduate and become successful.
What do you enjoy most about your career?
Helping people achieve their goals. It is inspiring to be able to help them further their education and become positive role models for their siblings and peers.
What is one of the best aspects about helping students change their lives?
One of the best things about helping students change their lives is saving their lives. We give students hope, strength and encouragement to be the very best they can be.
