Connect with Rick

Hi! My name is Rick. I am a marketing Rick1and communications professional with a passion for helping students find their purpose and calling through higher education.

I am the Director of Admissions at Southern Adventist University, managing our recruitment and operations teams and creating systems to assist our students in their enrollment process. I enjoy the face-to-face counseling and coaching I have the privilege of conducting with prospective students and families, assisting them through each stage of the enrollment journey.

I am also pursuing my Master’s Degree in Higher Education Administration, with an emphasis in Enrollment Management from Bay Path University in Boston. This degree also comes with an Enrollment Management Certification from Ruffalo Noel-Levitz – a leader in Higher Education training and research.

I have a passion for using data-driven, content-rich marketing to meet our goals and serve prospective students through each stage of their process. I have received the HubSpot Inbound Marketing Certification and have used that knowledge to create a dynamic communication flow and social media presence to effectively connect with prospective students and provide relevant information throughout their decision process.
