Caitlin Harper, College Counselor

Like Dorothy's adventure to the Emerald City, Caitlin, a Kansas girl, found her way to a small, liberal arts school in Portland, OR and her whole life changed. After landing a student work study job in the admissions office, she decided they couldn't make her leave after graduation, and she spent the next decade working her way up to Senior Associate Director of Admission. Her knowledge of the broad and everchanging landscape of higher education grew as she visited high schools, worked with students, and built a strong network of college counselor and admission officer colleagues all over the country.

Caitlin is a "developer," or so the many personality/strengths assessments she's obsessed with will tell you. She sees the potential in every student and knows from experience that the college application process presents a remarkable opportunity for students to realize that potential. She's also a Type-A taskmaster with a propensity for color-coding spreadsheets. You've been forewarned.

Those who know her best would tell you Caitlin is an ardent Chicago Cubs fan, believes that Disneyland is actually the happiest place on earth, and might seem like Glinda the Good Witch at first but has a secret Wicked Witch of the West sense of humor. (Luckily, she doesn't have the Wicked Witch laugh.)
