Nan Yuasa, College Counselor

Despite being a self-proclaimed tomboy, Nan parlayed her international business and marketing degree from Georgetown University into a successful 14-year career as a global marketer in the beauty industry, overseeing product launches for Estée Lauder, L’Oréal, and Procter & Gamble. But the call of duty proved stronger than the call of beauty, and Nan left it all behind to earn a master’s degree in school counseling from Seton Hall University, later interning in the guidance department at Tappan Zee High School in Orangeburg. She also volunteers her time as a counselor for a program with the Rockland County Youth Bureau, advising at-risk high school students.

Nan has competed in several Spartan Races (obstacle course events that closely resemble something out of Navy SEAL hell week), most recently finishing 4th overall out of 1700 females. When she’s not counseling or hurtling herself towards seemingly unreachable finish lines, Nan enjoys surfing, cheering with her husband for their beloved New York Jets, and making her young son laugh, often through bathroom-related humor.
