Director of Strategic Initiatives & College Advisor

Shoshannah is a passionate educator who has spent the past decade supporting students in their process of self-discovery, self-actualization, and finding opportunities that help them stand out. After completing her undergraduate and graduate degrees at Northwestern, she worked in the Northwestern Undergraduate Admissions Office, reading and evaluating thousands of applications. In this role, she gained essential insight into what wows an admissions committee—and she relies on this insight when advising students in building narratives that are both personally meaningful and impressive. Later, she worked at the University of Chicago for five years, building and executing class-specific student development programming to help students adjust to campus life, explore college majors, network with alumni, and identify possible career paths. Each of these experiences has allowed her to better understand how to help students identify unique and transformative growth opportunities.

In her work at College Prep 360, Shoshannah takes a personalized approach to counseling, placing an emphasis on building relationships and trust with her students. She also prides herself on her project management and organizational skills, supporting her students through each step of the process, whether they are launching a complex innovation project or simply staying on top of application deadlines.

Shoshannah resides in Chicago and spends her free time playing beach volleyball, traveling, reading, cooking, enjoying the outdoors, and riding her bike around the city. She also loves practicing calligraphy and exploring her artistic side.
