As an educator in higher education for more than 15 years, Paul is passionate about helping students find their “best fit” school in order for them to be successful throughout their collegiate experience and beyond.  Paul joins the admissions staff to pursue ongoing opportunities in advancing students in their journey to Becker College an institution that offers a comprehensive, competitive and Agile Mindset experience.

Paul joins us from Nativity School of Worcester where he was the Director of College Placement and Transition.  He worked closely with the graduates and their families during the college admissions process.

Paul began as an Admissions Counselor at Norwich University in Northfield, VT, and moved from there to Saint Leo University, in Saint Leo, FL, as Assistant Director of Admissions.  Paul enhanced his higher education experience by joining College Bound Selection Services in Belton, MO.  Here he helped colleges and universities throughout the Midwest and Eastern United States develop their own recruiting pools to build their incoming classes.  Returning to admissions, he then joined Nichols College in Dudley, MA, as Associate Director of Admissions.  After his tenure there he worked for The Cambridge Institute of International Education.  Paul pioneered a new division of consulting, launching a college counseling service to coach these same students through their stateside college searches.  Paul then moved on to a role with The Princeton Review as their Operations Manager based in Newton, MA.  He then was giving an opportunity to create another college counselor service for student-athletes at The Farm Baseball Performance Institute in Waltham, MA.

In an ever-changing market with dynamic trends, Paul is driven to partner with individual college-bound students, empowering them to find the school that is best suited for them – hitting all criteria: academic, athletic, cultural, geographic and even financial needs.

Paul lives with his wife, Allison, and their two daughter, Waverly and Rowan, in Maynard, MA.
