Ashley Meyer, College Counselor

Ashley has loved talking about college since her tour guide days at the University of South Carolina. She fell so deeply in love with higher education that she became an admission officer at Georgia Tech where she read thousands of applications per year. Her favorite applicant essay spoke about the student’s desire to attend GT to be near the sea otters at the Georgia Aquarium. She sent a “Welcome to Georgia Tech” message from the otters themselves, and she has been personalizing the admission process for students ever since. When she switched from reading applications to supporting students’ applications as a college counselor in Atlanta, she brought what she’d learned from highly selective admissions and supported students through the admission process with care and always a bit of down-to-earth real talk. Her students have been offered admission to Harvard, Yale, Columbia, University of Chicago, Cornell, Brown, NYU, Georgetown, Notre Dame, University of Michigan, UC Berkeley, UCLA, Emory, and many more! 

Though most of Ashley’s career has been in the southeast, she moved north to obtain her Master's Degree in Higher Ed from Harvard’s Graduate School of Education. As a Critical Languages Scholar for the Department of State, she has also spent significant time in China and loves traveling abroad whenever her schedule allows (her favorite destination thus far has been Stockholm where she still has some relatives!). When she’s not talking about college, she enjoys trying Atlanta’s best restaurants, seeking out the best playgrounds with her two toddlers, and cheering for the many teams she supports (but most of all, the Gamecocks).
