Before joining DeVry University, she was student services lead manager at Westwood College. Scott has contributed to the Denver-area education and business communities through her membership in the Adams County Education Consortium, which helps local learners develop academic skills, explore different professional avenues and learn relevant work skills.

“During my time at DeVry University, I’ve had the privilege of providing students academic, career and personal guidance to help position them for success after they graduate,” Scott said. “I am passionate about continuing to support DeVry University students in making a positive impact in the Denver area and beyond.”
