"It is hard to overestimate the value of Goucher's experience with advising students. Their familiarity with the process and their care for you as a person helps you prepare a polished application. It's an example of the expertise and supportive atmosphere I so appreciated."
Before starting at Goucher, Laurel worked as an audiologist. She had also trained as an American Sign Language interpreter and worked as an advocate for individuals with disabilities.
