Hello! My name is Ashley Wilson, and I am the Admissions Counselor for Bradley and Polk County.

I graduated from Lee University in December 2017 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and a minor in Social Work. Growing up in a small town near Cleveland, it was always a dream to attend Lee University. I quickly found community here by having the privilege of being a part of the Lee University Singers and serving as a freshman peer leader for incoming students. During my time in the Lee Singers, I was given the opportunity to travel across the United States as well as cross-culturally. Some highlights from my time at Lee were traveling to Italy in Spring 2015 and South Africa in Spring 2017 with the Lee Singers. These opportunities provided ways for me to grow both spiritually and relationally.

Overall, Lee allowed me to develop and strengthen my faith, create lasting friendships, and be challenged academically. Lee offers a diverse atmosphere with a place for everyone, and it would be my pleasure to assist you during this time of decision and transition to find your own story. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!

I’m excited to help answer any of your questions or concerns about Lee!

I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in advertising, with a public relations minor, from Lee in May of 2015. While I was a student at Lee, I was a member of the social-service Greek club ‘Sigma Nu Sigma’ and the American Advertising Federation student society. I was also an intern with Southside Creative Group, a local marketing agency, and participated in the National Student Advertising Campaign competitions for two consecutive years. Though Lee’s Cross-Cultural program I was able to travel with other communication students to the beautiful country of Italy and a few of the Greek islands. While studying abroad, we broadened our international marketing spectrum by observing their communication industry and experiencing their culture. While working full time in the Admissions Office, I am also pursuing my Master’s in Business Administration. The faculty and student body at Lee University have served as agents for my abilities and gifts, and in doing so, have promoted my well-being undoubtedly. I’ll forever be grateful for all the opportunities and experiences that Lee University gave me!

Lee University was the perfect fit for me because of the many opportunities for spiritual growth and academic growth. I absolutely loved my time as a Lee student – the professors who challenged me and believed in my abilities, the lifelong friendships I gained, and the beautiful campus nestled in the Tennessee mountains all added to this great experience I had as a student. As a student, I not only grew so much academically, but I also learned more about others, myself, and my relationship with The Lord. I recognize that looking for your perfect fit in a college can be overwhelming and tricky at times, but I hope I can make the process easier. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have about Lee University, I am here to help you!

Hey! My name is Logan Byrd, and I am the Admission Counselor for Middle and West Tennessee, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, and New Mexico. I would love to be able to answer any questions that you may have about Lee University and specifically the admissions process.

I am originally from Baldwin, NY, but am most recently from Atlanta, GA. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Youth Ministry right here at Lee in 2018. Lee was not in my original plan for college; however, I realized there was a much higher calling for me. During my time at Lee, I was involved with a small portion of what Lee has to offer. I had the opportunity to be involved in CRU and their leadership team along with interning at a local church's youth ministry.

I enjoyed every aspect of my time at Lee University. I have many great memories from my years as a student and made friendships that I know will last forever. Lee is a safe place that allows and encourages healthy growth spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. You will find that professors here at Lee are genuine and caring as they go beyond just being educators and often become mentors and close friends.

I would love to share more about Lee with you! Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions or would like to talk through how you can become a Lee student.

Hello! My name is Jetny Alexis and I am the Admissions Counselor for Hamilton County, Marion County, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Texas. I am so thrilled that you are considering Lee University as your future home away from home! It is my pleasure to help you throughout this new endeavor. So, if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to me!

I graduated from Lee in July 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Health Care Administration, and I am currently pursuing my Master's in Business Administration here. My journey to Lee was definitely a leap of faith! I transferred to Lee in the fall of 2015 from a community college in New York without ever visiting campus or Tennessee. To this day, I can honestly say that it was one of the best decisions of my life! During my time as an undergraduate student, I had the privilege of being a member of the Evangelistic Singers and was able to minister across the United States. As a Lee student, I made the greatest friends, discovered strength I did not know I had, grew tremendously in my faith and studies, and most importantly, have found my identity in Christ. My years at Lee have been the most transformative of my life thanks to professors and friends that I now consider family.

I am excited to see the impact that Lee will have on you and all that you will bring to this family! If I can be of any help to you throughout the process, please feel free to contact me!

Hello! My name is Markie Dean, and I am the Admissions Counselor for Georgia. I would love to help answer any questions you may have about Lee and the admissions process!

I graduated from Lee University in May 2020 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Relations and a minor in Digital Media. I was raised in a town west of Atlanta and always wanted to pursue basketball in college. The first time I stepped onto Lee’s campus and watched the women’s basketball team, I knew that this was where I was supposed to be. Lee was the perfect fit for me because of the size and the community. The Lord made a way for me to go to my dream school and play the sport I love.

My time at Lee was one of the best experiences of my life. I had the opportunity to travel, learn, and lead. I was involved in other campus activities such as small groups and working in the special events office. These extra activities allowed me to learn leadership and professionalism. My classes challenged and prepared me for entering the next stage in my life. During my time at Lee, not only did I grow academically, but I also grew more spiritually. Lee surrounds students with professors and peers who want to help you learn and learn with you, and I am very thankful for the relationships I gained.

I am excited for you to learn more about Lee and the amazing opportunities that you could experience here!

Hi! My name is Kennedy Blair, and I am the Admissions Counselor for East Tennessee. I am so excited that you are considering attending Lee University! I would love to be able to answer any questions you may have and help you through this new transition in your life!

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Public Relations with minors in both Business Administration and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) in July 2019. While I was a student at Lee, I was a Student Ambassador for the Admissions Office, as well as a student worker for the Global Perspectives Office and the Communication Arts Department. I was also a member of the social service Greek club ‘Delta Zeta Tau’. Upon graduation, I participated in the Disney College Program in Orlando, Florida. I also had the opportunity to travel abroad to Lausanne, Switzerland to participate in a Discipleship Training School through Youth With A Mission. I am thrilled to be back at Lee and helping serve incoming students as they begin their own Lee journey!

My time at Lee was one of the most transformational times of my life. Lee allowed me to be stretched and challenged academically and relationally. Most importantly, I was stretched spiritually and ultimately was able to discover more of God’s heart and his purpose for my life. My favorite thing about Lee is the Christ-centered community and lifelong friendships I’ve made here. Lee gave me much more than a degree; it gave me a home. I’m excited to help you write your own Lee story! Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!

Hello! I am Rachel McHann, and I am the Admissions Counselor for Connecticut, DC, Delaware, Florida, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, and Puerto Rico.

I'm originally from Aiken, South Carolina, and dreamed about coming to Lee since I was very young, but I was afraid it would always be just a dream for me rather than a reality. At the beginning of my senior year of high school, I toured and visited what seemed like hundreds of colleges. None of them felt like home to me. After visiting Lee's campus the summer after I graduated high school, I knew it was what the Lord had for me. Thanks to the Admissions Office and Lee's traveling drama team, Kingdom Players, my dream became a reality that following fall. During my time at Lee, I was involved in Kingdom Players, held leadership roles in two Greek service clubs, and graduated with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration. I also had the opportunity to travel abroad to Cambodia which opened the door for me to serve as a missionary there after I graduated. I'm more than excited that the Lord has led me back to Lee and blessed me with the opportunity to serve here. Lee has felt like home to me since day one, and I love getting to play a part in prospective students finding their future home here as well.

Deciding what college to attend can be an exciting yet extremely daunting task. Talking with the Admissions Office and visiting campus can help calm any worries or concerns you may have. If Lee is on your radar, I'd love to talk with you and show you all that our beautiful university has to offer! Please feel free to contact me with anything you may need. I can't wait to talk with you!
