Major: Sociology
Minor: Education
Admissions Counselor, Johns Hopkins University

“My liberal arts education at Bowdoin pushed me outside of my comfort zone and helped me discover nascent passions, like social justice. My Sociology major and Education minor helped me better understand and explain the problems I see in society, but more importantly, it taught me how to be flexible and interpret issues at the micro- and macro-level, which is very applicable to my current position. My job at Hopkins is data-driven; we concentrate on data so that we can see long-term trends to know what is and is not an effective recruitment approach. We can then propose and implement new methods.”
