Christian has spent a decade carrying out this passion, having done in the most recent capacity as a Chicago-based Assistant Director for Admissions at Augustana College. Through her work with students from many different backgrounds and geographical areas, Christian recognizes the level of passion required to holistically support students and their families during the college search process. As a first-generation college student and seasoned college admissions professional, she is excited to be joining the Beacon community.
