Alisha has more than 15 years of direct experience in college admissions, most recently serving as the Director of Admission at Ohio Wesleyan University.
Alisha earned an undergraduate degree in business and a MBA from Butler University, and is currently pursuing a Doctor of Education degree from Johns Hopkins University with an emphasis in Educational Neuroscience.
Alisha served as the Associate Director of Law Admissions at Ohio Northern University, managing the recruitment and admission of law school applicants. This included reviewing law school and scholarship applications, as well as building relationships with students and pre-law advisors. Alisha has read thousands of law school applications and knows what goes into the selection process when building a law class, as she was also responsible for analyzing data and implementing strategies to recruit and admit a variety of applicants to the law program.
Having served in various admissions capacities during her time at Ohio Wesleyan, including Transfer Recruitment and Admissions Operations, Alisha has worked with a wide variety of students and majors from all across the United States.
Alisha is dedicated to helping students, and because of her educational focus on neuroscience and the way people learn, she also enjoys working with students who have learning differences, are undecided about a possible career path, or need a little extra confidence. From mock interviews to writing essays, Alisha approaches counseling with compassion and a strong desire to see students grow throughout the college application process.
In her free time, Alisha enjoys spending time with her rescue dogs, running, and biking. She completed her first Ironman 70.3 last summer and is always looking forward to the next race. She also loves hiking and being outdoors, and summited Mt. Rainier in 2011.
