What do you do for College Possible?

I supervise our college access AmeriCorps members and act as the liaison with our area high school partners.

What do you love most about your job?

I have always loved getting to support others and my role is all about that—our AmeriCorps coaches work very hard to ensure all students have the tools and support they need to be successful, so I am honored to be part of the team that is there to provide our coaches with the same support and guidance they provide students each day.

What do you want to learn more about this year?

I am new to the Omaha area, so I am excited to learn more about the city and all it has to offer!

Why College Possible?

The students we serve often face numerous obstacles and barriers beyond their education, making it difficult for them to fully focus on pursuing a college education. The College Possible team is dedicated to alleviating the stress of college admissions and empowers students with the necessary tools to be successful throughout their college journey. As someone who shares a similar background, joining this mission was an obvious choice for me.
