Office of Professional and Graduate Studies
Graduate and Accelerated Nursing Students

While pursuing her undergraduate degree at the Mount, Ellen worked as an office assistant in Admission and as a student ambassador. Her love of college admissions developed during her time spent in the Office of Admission and working with incoming students and families at admission events. After graduation, she was hired as an information manager and within two years was promoted to Graduate Admission Counselor. This position allowed her to work with the adult population and assist students in returning to school and furthering their education.

Ellen now oversees admission for the Office of Professional and Graduate Studies and recruits students who want to pursue graduate degrees in business, education, or nursing at the Mount. She also talks to prospective students who wish to start careers in nursing by enrolling in the College’s Accelerated Nursing program or who want to advance their careers by earning certifications through the Mount’s professional programs in Additional Classroom Teaching Certificate in ESOL, Advanced Certificate Program – Family Nurse Practitioner, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), and Certified Financial Planning (CFP®). During her time off, she works as a volunteer EMT and enjoys spending time with friends and family.
