Jeff began working in financial aid in 1996 as a federal work study student while an undergraduate at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania where he graduated with a BA in Communications. He decided the field was actually a good fit for him so he moved to Boston, the higher education capital of the world to pursue his career. He worked at a handful of proprietary schools, working his way up from a Financial Aid Counselor to Director and then a regional, traveling Director. He has been with HEAG full-time since the summer of 2013.
Jeff’s strengths lie in technical staff training, superior customer service and proficiency with numerous financial aid software platforms such as PowerFAIDS, Populi, FAME and some Jenzabar/DataTel experience. He has been assigned to numerous campuses throughout New England, fulfilling needs such as Interim Director, Student Accounts representative and an auditor of student financial aid files. He has also assisted with the completion of A-133 audits and collection of documentation for accreditation visits. Jeff thrives on his ability to adapt to all different types of schools and situations, from large community colleges to small graduate programs.
