About Gabbi TobiasCollege Admissions Consultant

My Background

I came to College Coach after working in college access for years. I began my career at High Point University where I read and evaluated thousands of applications from territories across the US, including the greater Midwest and the West Coast. I also trained and supervised student workers and led essay workshops and case studies to educate prospective families on the college admissions process. Dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusion during my time at High Point, I implemented and led the office’s Diversity Recruitment Board, which focused on recruitment, yield, and retention of students from underrepresented communities. While leading the Diversity Recruitment Board, I created the Diversity Mentorship program focusing on building intentional community for students from underrepresented backgrounds.

Why I Joined Bright Horizons College Coach

I joined College Coach because my passion is to help students and families navigate this very important step in their lives. I thrive on assisting families in realizing that the college application process does not have to be as daunting as it seems. I was fortunate to have family and committed educators who assisted me in this process, and now is my opportunity to help others. In my work as an admissions counselor, I enjoyed being an advocate for students in the college search process, and, in turn, teaching them how to advocate for themselves. My advocacy included guiding students towards their best fit, whether that was their best-fit college or university, major, or simply environment. I love working at College Coach because I am able to combine my experience in admissions with my passion and dedication for helping others achieve their goals.
