Hello! My name is Melissa Vrable. I work with students interested in studying Nursing, Social Work, History, Philosophy, Political Science, Pre-Law, Social Studies Secondary Education, and Theology. I visit high schools and attend college fairs in Pennsylvania (Counties: Montgomery, Delaware, Bucks, Philadelphia), and New Jersey (Counties: Cumberland, Gloucester, Salem).
I am originally from Latrobe, PA (located less than 2 hours east of Pittsburgh). I recently graduated with my M.A. in Student Affairs in Higher Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Prior to that, I worked as an Assistant Director of Admissions at Manchester University in Indiana. In 2007, I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Spanish Education from La Roche College in Pittsburgh, PA. During my time at La Roche, I participated in a study abroad program to Salamanca, Spain. That international experience was life changing and I encourage you to seek out opportunities to study abroad during your college experience!
Now I am excited to be part of the Alvernia community! I am available to help you and your family through the college admissions process. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to meeting you!
