College Counseling

Ann Parks

Director of College Counseling Communication

After two decades in higher education, I joined Ransom Everglades in a new role of Director of College Counseling Communications with college counselor responsibilities. My career in higher education started as a college basketball coach for eight years before transitioning into my roles in admissions. Before joining the Ransom Everglades community, I served as Deputy Director of Undergraduate Admissions and then as Director of Enrollment Communications at Cornell University. I earned a Bachelor of Science from Nazareth College, a Master of Science in Teaching from SUNY Potsdam, and a Master of Business Administration from Rivier University. I am an avid sports fan, enjoy being outside, a pet lover and I serve on the board for the Nashua Youth Council.
Founded in 1903, Ransom Everglades School is a coeducational, college preparatory day school for grades 6 - 12 located on two campuses in Coconut Grove, Florida. Ransom Everglades School produces graduates who "believe that they are in the world not so much for what they can get out of it as for what they can put into it." The school provides rigorous college preparation that promotes the student's sense of identity, community, personal integrity and values for a productive and satisfying life, and prepares the student to lead and to contribute to society.
