Associate Director of College and Residential Life Counseling
Becky has been working at Gilmour since 2011 in the Counseling and Residence Hall communities. She loves the opportunity to work alongside students as they navigate the college process. Before arriving at Gilmour, Becky spent seven years working on the college admission side, and she utilizes that expertise and knowledge to help students and families through the college decision process. In addition to her college counseling role, Becky also serves as the counselor for all students in the Residence Hall during their entire Gilmour experience. She helps them juggle the demands of high school while living away from home.
Originally from Syracuse, New York, Becky earned a bachelor's degree in music education and piano performance from Xavier University, a master’s degree in higher education and student affairs from Saint Louis University, and a post-master’s license in school counseling from John Carroll University. She is active in the National Association of College Admission Counseling (NACAC) and the Ohio Association of College Admission Counseling (OACAC) organizations. She was elected in 2018 by other Ohio high school counselors and Ohio college admission professionals to be one of the six Ohio delegates for the NACAC Association. In this three-year term, Becky will function as a member of the governing body that initiates, advises and provides consent on association and professional issues within the higher education field. In addition, she will serve as a member of the Executive Board for the Ohio Association of College Admission Counseling (OACAC) for the next three years.
Becky loves her job for a wide variety of reasons, but her favorite moments are the encounters she has with students on a daily basis. She loves the opportunity to get to know students and families, and watching them experience the joy of being part of the Gilmour community just as she has.
Outside of counseling, Becky loves all things music and being in the outdoors. Winter is her favorite season, as she enjoys skiing and making snow angels.
