Description of Experience : I have progressive college admissions experience from 2003-2011 at Bryant University. At the end of my time at Bryant, I was a Senior Assistant Director of Admission, sitting on the admissions/marketing team, and responsible for managing the admissions website and social media presence. Additionally, I continued to manage a travel territory and read applications for that geographic area. In July 2011, I began working as an independent counselor at Campus Bound in MA. During that time, I worked with a caseload of 10-15 students each year. I opened and managed a new office for Campus Bound in Mansfield, MA in 2012 and continued to work with families and manage that office until I left the company at the end of 2014. In 2015, I incorporated Farias College Admission Partners, LLC, and continue to work with a small caseload of students per class year. Two additional college counselors now work with me and each have an individual caseload of students.
