Rebecca joined the Kingswood Oxford Admissions team in July 2007. She developed a love for the world of Admissions back as a college student volunteering in the Office of Admission at her alma mater, The College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio where she earned a B.A. in Sociology and was a four-year member of the women’s lacrosse team. Rebecca works closely with KO’s Middle School and heads up Shield & Dragon, KO’s student ambassador program. Other interests of hers include skiing, tennis, cooking, and traveling. Rebecca grew up living in eight towns among four states, and some of her fondest memories were from their days raising llamas. She lives with her husband and their two children in West Hartford.

Danielle is an inviting new face to the Admissions department. Before working at KO, she was the program coordinator at The Learning Center at Central Connecticut State University. There, she was responsible for the student development and academic support program dedicated to students of color. She created programming to increase a feeling of belonging and a sense of community on campus and served as a liaison for families in need of assistance with athletics, financial aid, and counseling. Her additional experiences include ten years as a principal attorney in a local law firm based in Manchester.
Hope graduated from Miss Porter’s School and earned her bachelor’s degree in English at Wesleyan University. She began her KO career in May 2019 as a data specialist on the Advancement team. She also served as the interim Middle School coordinator twice and, most recently, interim College Counseling Office coordinator. In addition to these KO experiences, Hope brings over two decades of nonprofit administration and management experience in New York, Arizona, and Los Angeles. Her guiding philosophy throughout her career has been that “every touchpoint with another person is an opportunity to create, grow, and strengthen a relationship.”
