Jenny had what can only be described as a meteoric rise in the world of admissions. After a college internship in the financial aid office at her alma mater, Peace College (now William Peace University), Jenny moved into Peace’s admissions office first as an assistant director and later as director of admissions. After 12 years, thousands of applications, and too many admissions committee meetings to count, Jenny decided she wanted to spend all of her time doing her favorite part of the job—counseling students—and joined Collegewise in August 2014.
An expert in transfer admissions, Jenny has been counseling students through the transfer process since 2004 for both fall and spring enrollment. Over the years, her students have successfully transferred from community colleges and four-year colleges to universities of their choice. Jenny also has experience with college readmission applications, having navigated the process with students who wished to return to college after a period of absence.
Originally from the South, Jenny loves southern cooking and has very strong opinions as to the superiority of Eastern North Carolina barbecue over, well, every other kind of barbecue. It’s a vinegar/pepper base vs. tomato base distinction that apparently has sparked controversy and debate all the way to the highest levels of North Carolina state legislature.

What are people saying about Collegewise?
I honestly have no idea what I would do without Collegewise. Jenny has been essential to helping me understand the necessary requirements. She has been absolutely wonderful and I would dread applying for colleges for the first time without her. Collegewise is hands down the best college decision I have made so far.
From the very beginning, Jenny has been knowledgeable, professional, upbeat, enthusiastic, and patient. I am confident that, through Jenny, both Chris and Garrett will have enough insight into the schools to "own" their college decision and will be more likely to succeed in the school of their choice.

Collegewise really helped me with every step of the college application process. I was extremely stressed about applying to college, but going to Collegewise made the whole process easy and straightforward.

Collegewise was really helpful in getting me ready for college. When I got to school, everyone was just starting to fill out their Common Application, while I was already done! I had also already made a lot of headway on my essays. I had things done a lot earlier than other students at my school because of Collegewise.
We had a very positive experience with Collegewise! The ever-changing college applications were especially new to us. Our daughter felt comfortable, and the steps and expectations were clear and manageable.

Miss Jenny was honestly the one person who kept me sane throughout the whole college application process! She was always a text/phone call away and I was able to Skype with her as well. She really puts her students first and foremost and you can tell that she is in this business because she truly cares about our futures.
