Having grown up in a nearby Cleveland suburb and having been with Oberlin admissions since 1998, I consider myself a "pseudo-Obie." As a firm believer in the value of education, I have earned my bachelor's and master's degrees in psychology at the University of Toledo and doctorate in higher and post-secondary education at the University of Michigan.
