Hi, I'm Carrie. I enrolled as a student at Jefferson College in the fall of 1999, and I loved it so much that I never left! I began my career as the Faculty Secretary, just a few months after graduating with my Associate of Arts Degree. I later moved to Student Services where I held jobs as a recruiter and as an academic advisor before becoming the Director of Admissions in January 2020. I also taught first year experience classes for five years and immensely enjoyed helping new students learn the skills they needed to succeed in college. Somewhere along the line, I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Communication and my Master's Degree in Adult and Higher Education from the University of Missouri - St. Louis. Working in Admissions gives me the opportunity to witness the transformative effects that education can have on someone's life. My grandmother was actually the first non-traditional student to enroll when Jefferson College first opened, and I think of her - in her forties with four kids at home, determined to finally get that college education she always dreamed of - any time I meet a new student who isn't quite sure if college is the right choice. I promise you - it is! Please reach out to me at
cgreer4@jeffco.edu or 636-481-3220 if you need help getting started. 



Hi! I'm Kaysie. I graduated from DeSoto High School. After graduating high school, I attended Jefferson College as a first generation college student, which means I was the first in my family to go to college. While I was a student, I worked in the Office of Admissions where I got to give tours of campus and help students get their start at Jefferson College. After graduating from Jefferson College, I transferred to University of Missouri - St. Louis where I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Communication. I loved Jefferson College so much that I came back. I am now an Enrollment Services Specialist in the Office of Admissions. As a student, I felt so fortunate to have so many wonderful people and resources to help guide me through the college process. Now, I have the opportunity to help students through this process. If you have any questions about the next steps to becoming a student at Jefferson College, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am here to help you with questions about the admission process, financial aid/scholarships, Jefferson College programs/degrees/certificates, and academic advising. You can email me at kdudley@jeffco.edu or call me at 636-481-3237.



Hey, I'm Jaclyn! I am an Enrollment Services Specialist in Admissions here at Jefferson College, which means I meet students at our local high schools and within our community to help get them ready for their first semester as Vikings. I was born and raised here in Jefferson County. I attended Jefferson R-7 through 8th grade and graduated from Crystal City High School. I lived in Cape Girardeau, Missouri after high school while I worked on my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Master of Arts in Higher Education Administration degrees at Southeast Missouri State University. During those six years, I had the opportunity to work in the departments of Residence Life, Counseling and Disability Services, New Student Programs, Student Conduct, and Admissions at SEMO. After I obtained my master's degree, I worked as an Admissions Coordinator at Southern Illinois University and as a Hall Director in Residence Life at Southeast Missouri State University. In July of 2018, I had an incredible opportunity to move home and begin working here at Jefferson College, and it has certainly been a perfect fit for me! I love getting to work with new students and help them get on the right path for whatever career they want to pursue. 

If you have questions about taking your next steps to become a Jefferson College Viking, please feel free to reach out to me.

Hello, I’m Lani! I currently work as the Admissions Assistant at Jefferson College! My role on campus includes answering questions from prospective students. I became a Viking in 2016, when I started my educational career at Jefferson College. Becoming a student led me to a position as a Student Leader in the Enrollment Services Department. After my graduation in 2019, I transitioned to an Enrollment Services Assistant. I am currently enrolled in the online Trulaske College of Business at Mizzou, where I plan to receive my Bachelors in Business Administration in 2021. Jefferson College has given me the tools for success and felt like an extension of home. Please feel free to reach out to me regarding questions about the Admissions Department at lmeyer16@jeffco.edu or 636-481-3226.
