After earning a B.A. in Government and Religious Studies from Colby College, and a MS.Ed. from the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn), Ms. Nguyen became a Regional Director of Admissions and Associate Director of Opportunity and Access for the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at Penn. In this work, she helped develop recruitment and yield strategies for underrepresented populations in higher education. She then went on to serve as the Registrar for the Graduate School of Education at Penn where she worked extensively with student records, financial aid and school policies and procedures, with continued focus on opportunity and access.
Joining Steppingstone in 2013, Ms. Nguyen has worked closely with Dr. Vereen and Mr. Avery to help manage the rapid growth of Steppingstone’s programmatic initiatives and provide new and necessary operational support for staff as well as school partners. From financial management to technology to human resources, Ms. Nguyen leverages her extensive experience as a Penn administrator to enhance the expanded support to Scholars and Scholar families now offered by Steppingstone.
