Let us introduce you!

Instructional designers, SEO strategists, enrollment specialists, IT support specialists …  these are just a few of the people who dive into each of our partners’ missions, goals and values in order to create custom student experience, technology and enrollment solutions. Every single person at Collegis Education is integral to our ability to deliver for our partners.

We sat down with Ann Bolton, program delivery manager, to learn more about who she is and how she supports our partners.

How would you describe your job to someone who is unfamiliar with the field?
