About Chorissa

Chorissa helps transfer students navigate the admissions process and determine if Prescott College is the right fit for them. 

Hometown :

Prescott, Arizona

Favorite part of your job:

Every person has a different story, and different motivation for wanting to pursue higher education. I love learning each story that got them here, and helping each student discover a path that leads them to their next story and goal.

Undergraduate Degree:

Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies from the University of Arizona

Favorite aspect of Prescott College:

The "traditional" higher education model doesn't work for everyone, and I'm proud that Prescott College allows students to create a program that does work for them, and provides them with hands-on experience to set them up for impact long after they've graduated from Prescott College.

Favorite thing to do in the area and the world:

Locally I love rock climbing with my family, and watching our daughter grow and develop into a little rockstar human. In the world, as long as I'm on a mountain I'm pretty happy. I like long-term backpacking trips that include the exhausting victory of summit views.

Personal interests and hobbies:

Obsessive UA Wildcats fan, backpacking, camping, rock climbing, paddleboarding, baseball, yoga, building furniture, and (until May!) wedding planning!
