MEET KARA Admissions CounselorGrowing up in Alexandria, VA, I found the fast pace of the DC area more familiar than anything in TN. I graduated from Bryan College in 2011 with a Communications major and a minor in English. Visiting Bryan for the first time as a high school senior was my first encounter with the South, and I surprised myself at how “at home” I felt at Bryan.I was looking for a Christian school that was genuinely Christ-centered, and I found that in the small town of Dayton, TN. Playing four years of varsity soccer was my way of getting involved in college. What started for me as a chance to keep playing the sport I loved eventually became my most rewarding experience at Bryan (Go Lions!). As your admissions counselor, I would love to tell you what life is like here at Bryan!
Admissions CounselorI grew up by the river in Rock Island, Tennessee. When I was in high school, my Dad went back to college to pursue his degree. He chose Bryan College. We started visiting Bryan as a family; and by the time I was a senior in high school, Bryan felt like home. I started Bryan in the fall of 2008. What drew me to Bryan was the tight knit community and the atmosphere of Bryan as a place to explore new ideas.At Bryan I was involved in the Worldview Initiative, Summit, and Break for Change. This involvement helped shape me as a thinker, leader, and servant of Christ. I met my husband at Bryan, and we married in the summer of 2011. We both graduated in the spring of 2012. I am thankful for the lifelong friendships I have built with both students and professors during my time at Bryan. I plan on pursuing a counseling license and starting my own practice.I would love to tell you more about my Bryan experience and why I love Bryan College!
Admissions CounselorI was born in Southern California; but as a Navy brat, my family never stayed in one place for long, though I would claim Colorado Springs as home. I came to Bryan College in the fall of 2007. My older sister graduated from Bryan, and I already loved the atmosphere of Bryan before becoming a student. Though I changed my major three times, I finally settled down on Psychology and received my degree in December of 2010.During my time at Bryan, I was able to participate in Break for Change and the Psychology Club, as well as volunteer and intern at the Women’s Care Center in downtown Dayton. Upon graduation, I began working full time in the Admissions Office and married a Bryan alumnus in the spring of 2011. I enjoy running, reading, and watching the Denver Broncos. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Bryan and look forward to helping students in their college search!
Admissions CounselorI grew up in the great state of Idaho in a small town of 23 people, where the closest Walmart was over an hour away. My dad was the pastor of a small, non-denominational Bible church, and both of my parents are Bryan alums. I came to Bryan in 2007 and graduated in the spring of 2011 with my B.A. What really drew me to Bryan was the school's motto, "Christ above all." I wanted to study at a place where Christ was set at the center of everything.As a student, I loved my time at Bryan. It was a place that challenged me both academically and personally, and I am confident that the relationships I built with both students and faculty will last a lifetime. As an admissions counselor, I enjoy working with prospective students and helping them find a school that meets their needs the way Bryan met mine.
