Felisa Nobles is an expert at academic coaching, matching individuals with the right opportunity and increasing applicant competitiveness for highly selective programs.
Felisa began her career working in grants administration for the Department of Health and Human Services, which is where she first cultivated an understanding of competitiveness. She later transitioned to educational advocacy where she worked for a national superintendents' association addressing educational gaps within the K-12 system, and finally, she used this background to develop transformational programs for Harvard University.
For the past 10+ years working for Harvard University, Felisa worked across schools with recruitment and admissions officers, diversity and inclusion leaders, with faculty and administration to identify, prepare and recruit talented individuals for their rigorous programs. Felisa created several recruitment programs, which include the FACETS (Fostering Advancement and Careers through Enrichment Training In Science) fellows program and the Summer Program in Epidemiology, now known as the Summer Program in Epidemiology & Biostatistics. Additionally, she implemented new systems and processes during her time at the university, which included application counseling systems, academic preparedness programs, and data dashboards to understand what competitiveness looks like at highly selective, decentralized, global institutions.
Last but not least, Felisa is a proud Terp and graduated from the University of Maryland at College Park and received her Master's in Business Management from Emmanuel College, one of the Colleges of the Fenway.
