Jenny Peacock, College Counselor

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 her time doing her favorite part of the job—counseling students—and joined Collegewise in August 2014.

Jenny is particularly adept at project management and guiding students through the intricacies of the college application process. Over the years, her students have raved about her financial aid expertise and skill in helping them explore great financial-fit colleges and secure merit aid. Jenny also has deep experience with summer planning and has helped countless students discover and land valuable internships that help them grow as people and make them better college applicants. She’s a respected and sought-after public speaker in the community, sharing her wealth of knowledge with families at Wake County Libraries and the Durham County Public School System. Jenny’s students have gone on to attend schools like Duke, Cornell, Georgetown, Vanderbilt, Rice, UNC—to name a few.

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.
