Ali Springer, College Counselor

A career-long educator, Ali has spent the last fifteen years helping students on their educational journeys. She served as an Associate Director of Admission at Colorado College, her alma mater, for eight years, where she read thousands of applications, interviewed hundreds of students, and trained the admissions staff on how to identify strong applicants. She worked as an academic advisor while earning her master’s in Higher Education and Student Development, so she also brings the lens of college course selection and academic planning. Ali loves getting to know students throughout the admission process by asking thoughtful questions to encourage self-reflection. During the college research process, she’s incredibly adept at guiding students in procuring data and utilizing critical research skills to connect their passions and interests to the universities and their communities.

Ali is a big believer in the power of community, and one way that she has recently connected with the place she calls home in the Rocky Mountains was by buying a good pair of hiking boots to explore more of the state. In the last two years Ali has climbed 20 peaks over 14,000 feet! She also loves ballet, spin classes, and snowboarding, though she’ll be the first to admit her only speeds are slow and slow-medium. Don’t let her fool you, though — Ali thoroughly enjoys spending time indoors watching movies, cuddling with her chocolate lab (or her nieces and nephews!), and reading the latest news on college admissions.
