“I have been in the higher education field as an Enrollment Counselor for about 15 years, and almost 6 years of those years have been here at ACE. ACE is by far the best place I have ever worked and I honestly love my job for two major reasons. The first reason is that ACE truly puts students first and I am proud to stand behind and support every aspect of this college. The second reason is that I feel valued here, my ideas and suggestions are received and often put into place. ACE’s leaders, across all departments are what all industries are looking for. They are transformative leaders who create an environment of trust, appreciation, and success for each individual staff, for the many teams within various departments, and for the college as a whole.”

ACE provides a safe, diverse, and welcoming environment for all students and allows me to push my creative limits as an educator. ACE’s commitment to the student experience breaks down barriers and stigmas related to online learning by focusing on inclusive and authentic relationships. Everyone should be part of a learning community that values it’s students, faculty, and staff the way ACE does.”
