Personal College Counseling

At Clarke, we get to know everyone by their first name and unique story, and that starts with your Admissions Counselor. This person will provide you with tools and resources as you navigate the college admissions process, and answer your questions along the way. They are one member in the larger community of support at Clarke that encompasses everyone from your classmates and professors to custodial and dining staff. No matter what path led you here, we want Clarke to feel like home.

First Year Admissions Counselor

I am looking forward to being a “dream maker.” I want to help students learn why they should call Dubuque home. I want to connect undecided students with new opportunities and passions, and reassure students and parents that it is going to be okay.
