As strategy assistant for MCAN's High School Innovation department, Chloe provides support for the organization’s high school-focused initiatives.
Chloe worked as a college support professional for seven years, serving both high school and college populations. She started her career with the Teach for America Corps as a 12th grade mathematics teacher in metro Detroit. Embracing a college-preparatory focus, Chloe used her voice to create programming that nurtured students’ excitement and investment in their college access journeys. Prior to joining MCAN, she served Hampton University as a residence hall director, academic adviser, and judicial affairs advocate. Chloe was responsible for helping students overcome a wide variety of academic and personal challenges. Having developed a deeply empathic understanding of the student experience, she initiated design of department systems and led trainings that were grounded in high expectations for student support.
Chloe earned a Bachelor of Arts in public relations from Howard University and attended Hampton University for graduate school, earning a Master of Arts in college student development from the Department of Counseling. Having grown up in a single-parent, low-income household, she was eager to pursue the opportunities that college success would make available. Chloe attributes her own ability to access and afford college to having a community of supporters. Thanks to her college adviser, friends who served as essay editors, teachers who recommended scholarships, and a host of accountability partners, Chloe earned over $250,000 in scholarships, including the Bill and Melinda Gates Millennium Scholars award. This experience motivated her to serve in the field of education and help other students find their paths to college success.
In her spare time, Chloe enjoys spending time with friends, participating in local community service projects, thrift shopping for statement pieces, and part-time wedding planning.
