Angie joins Thrive Scholars as the College Access Manager based in Boston, MA. Originally from Colombia, Angie grew up in small-town North Carolina where she was heavily involved in peer mentoring and graduation initiatives from a young age.
Before joining Thrive, Angie worked as an Assistant Director of Admissions at Dartmouth College where she was a member of the Access Team. During her time there, she oversaw the Dartmouth Bound visitation program, where she developed and coordinated programming to demystify the college admissions process for underrepresented high school students.
Angie is a graduate of Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations where she minored in Law & Society, Latina/o Studies, and Inequality Studies. A Hufflepuff to the core, Angie is excited to join the team to help ensure Scholars have every opportunity to thrive in high school, college, and beyond.
