Academic Advisor

Nicole returned to Iona, as an academic advisor in 2016, after having graduated in 2010. Her career in higher education began in an admissions office where she engaged students in all steps as they moved from inquiry to enrollment. Nicole also worked in financial aid, where she guided students in all things FAFSA, and eventually, moved to advising. She enjoys assisting students as they create their first schedule, discussing major and program options as students make their path toward a degree program, and is excited to help them as they confirm their final semester and move on to graduation.
