Two sentences summarizing you, and your experience at AIC:

I am brand new to the AIC admissions team and very excited to get started. I worked in the admissions office during my 4 undergrad years and knew it was the career for me. I am excited to share my love of higher education with prospective students and their families and look forward to making many memories at AIC.

What I love about American International College:

I love the small, tight knit community that AIC offers. You can't walk more than 5 feet before saying hi to someone you know.

Why I love being an Admissions Counselor:

I love working with prospective students trying to find what programs and activities AIC has to offer them. I also love working with the student ambassadors who share their experiences with prospective students on tours, panels, and other events on campus.

Name a person alive or deceased that you would like to meet and why:

Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, Brigadier General Union Army.
