CMU Ashley HassiakCentral Methodist University’s Admissions Office has recently welcomed Ashley Hassiak as a new member of its team.

Hassiak, a Westchester County, New York native, will represent CMU at college fairs, open houses, and other recruitment events. She will focus on a specific segment of Missouri, and become familiar and acquainted with high school counselors, prospective students, and their parents.

"It’s a pleasure to welcome Ashley to the Enrollment Management team. She comes to us with experiences that will enrich our efforts to meet enrollment goals," said Dr. Joe Parisi, vice president for Enrollment Management at CMU. "Ashley brings a deep passion for higher education, has a natural gift as an admissions counselor, and mirrors CMU's culture by being driven by innovation and creative energy."

As a part of the admissions team, Hassiak will help students assess their educational background and future goals to see if CMU is a good fit for them, and then guide them through the enrollment process.

“Since the first time I stepped foot on CMU’s campus, I got the impression that both staff and students are like a big family – the kind of family I have been searching for since moving from New York,” Hassiak said. “I am really excited to be a part of it, and I cannot wait to make this beautiful campus my home away from home.”

Hassiak previously worked for CVS Pharmacy in Westchester County, N.Y. as a photo lab specialist, and for Walgreens in Columbia as a pharmacy technician and photo lab specialist. She received a bachelor’s degree in international studies from the University of Missouri.
