Kate Strzelecki, College Counselor

 

Kate Strzelecki’s admissions beginnings started in Hawaii. She first served as an assistant director of admission at Argosy University in Honolulu. Next, she spent five years as an assistant director of admission at Hawaii Pacific University with a stint based in Honolulu, and then back to those east coast winters as a regional counselor in the mid-Atlantic region. After that, Kate worked as a part-time admission reader for New York University for several years before transitioning into IEC work with an east coast firm. She counseled collaboratively with a small team of other counselors, but her superpower was working with students who transitioned or didn't connect with their previous counselor. Kate enjoys connecting students to their true interests, not what they "think" they should be interested in.

 

Kate earned her bachelor's in environmental science from Gettysburg College, and is currently pursuing her master's in science education at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Before she found her way to college admission, Kate worked in education: first as a School Program Coordinator for the National Audubon Society, and then as an Outdoor Educator for the Arlington Echo Outdoor Center in partnership with a local school district. Then, Kate ditched those east coast winters and headed to Hawaii as a program specialist for Waimea Valley, where she developed a grant plan for the protection of Hawaiian endangered and protected species. 

 

Although some people feel deep ties to our roots (Californians claim the best beaches and Mexican food, New Englanders claim Dunkin' Donuts and the Patriots), Kate has lived half of her life on each coast, so loves Dunkin' and California burritos both equally.
