Julie Carter Joins College Counseling Office

Episcopal is pleased to announce the hiring of Julie Carter in the College Counseling Office. Julie comes to ESJ from Berkeley Preparatory School in Tampa, FL, where she has served as a college counselor for seven years. While at Berkeley, Julie gained significant experience in all aspects of the college search and application process, including working with families seeking financial aid, student-athletes, international students, and students looking to attend selective out of state universities.

“Julie is well-respected among college admissions professionals, and regularly attends local, regional, and national professional development meetings and conferences.  She has personally visited more than seventy colleges and universities across the nation in the past seven years,” said Director of College Counseling Ryan Riggs. “We are excited to have Julie join our team. She brings a wealth of experience to our students and families, and she will be able to hit the ground running.  I’m also glad that Julie will provide a fresh set of eyes to look at our college counseling program, and suggest ways that we can improve what we offer our students and parents,” added Mr. Riggs. “Berkeley is a fine high school with a similar profile to ours, and I know that Julie will fit right in to our community.”

Julie began her career in college admissions at UNF, where she worked in the office of admissions there for ten years, recruiting students to UNF from across Florida and the Southeast.  While working at UNF, she earned her Master’s in Educational Leadership, with an emphasis on high school counseling.

“For years, I’ve admired and respected the sense of community and focus on development of students as individuals at Episcopal. I am thrilled to now be a part of the community as a member of the college counseling team! I look forward to sharing my experience and perspective to serve students and contribute to the Episcopal community,” shared Julie.
