Admissions Counselors

Meet your admissions counselors

We lovingly call them the A-team because they are awesome, aces, amazing, ardent, ambitious, and so much more. Mostly, though, they are the key to making sure you have all the assistance you need through your admissions process and the beginning of your Morningside journey.

This team is here to help YOU. They can connect you to faculty, staff, alumni, students, and many other resources on campus. Any information you wish to share with them they can use to personalize campus visits and get you connected.

Please email, text, and call them. They are here for you! Learn more about them below and click on the map to find your counselor.

My favorite part of my job is getting to know students before they begin their college careers & then getting to watch them succeed at Morningside!

I love being able to connect with high school students and guide them through such an important decision. Leaving high school and home behind to start off for college can be scary and I love that I get the opportunity to help students through all of that and get them excited about becoming more independent!

Amy Williams
Senior Associate Director of Admissions

I love that I called Morningside home as a student and have been blessed to call it home for more than 15 years as an employee. The changes that have happened on campus are truly unbelievable, but it is definitely the people that set this place apart from the rest! I truly enjoy working with prospective students and their families as they go through the college selection process.
