Phone: (888) 5-COTTEY, ext. 2233
I'm a Missouri girl from a town not unlike Nevada. I graduated from Cottey in 2003 and from Hood College in Frederick, Maryland, with my BA in French in 2005. I've been working in admissions since 2007 and joined the P.E.O. Sisterhood in 2010. I came back to Cottey in 2011!
States I work with: Arizona, Arkansas, Connecticut, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
Why not Cottey? I started to look at Cottey because of the International Experience (I mean, who wouldn't want to travel to London, or Paris, or Madrid, or…?) but the more I investigated, I discovered that the campus atmosphere, the small class sizes, and the freedom to try new classes and new activities really appealed to me. I wanted a personalized experience with extraordinary opportunities. For me, it was perfect.
Rural Missouri, really?
Yeah, for real! Nevada's part of the Cottey experience, but so are trips to Kansas City, shopping in Joplin, and exploring the region. Whether it's just like where you're from or it's the complete opposite, it's hard to be bored on campus. Most of what you might miss is close enough to drive to, so it's really the best of both worlds!
Women's education: old-fashioned?
Absolutely not! There's nothing old-fashioned about a college experience that supports who you are and how you learn! Women who graduate from all-women's colleges are happier, more successful, and earn more throughout their lifetimes. Who wouldn't want that? Women's education has a definite place in the world today. I encourage you to check out our campus and talk to our students - there's nothing old-fashioned about it!
My thoughts on admissions in one sentence:
Working in admissions is definitely fun, but the best part is getting to know you and discovering what's important to you; it's a big decision and I'm here to help!
