Hi everyone!! My name is Nicholle Wyatt. I grew up on an 80-acre farm located outside Portland, Oregon. A first generation college student, I attended Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon where I was a nationally ranked handball player (it’s like racquetball, but you use your hands) and graduated with a Mass Communications degree. After three years serving as a college admissions representative there, I went to the U of San Diego where I earned my MA in School Counseling while working in their Undergraduate Admissions Office.
Prior to coming to HTH, I was the Head College Counselor for 19 years at Academy Our Lady of Peace (OLP), where I met my husband — who also works there (a Spanish teacher). During my tenure at OLP, I kept my hand in the college admissions field by working as an Admissions Reader for UCSD for 12 years and currently for UCLA the past 10 years. I also served on the Board of Directors for the National Catholic College Admissions Association and was on the Local Advisory Committee for the National College Counseling Conference held in San Diego in 2015. I have been on the National College Fair Committee for over 18 years and am the WACAC SLC-San Diego Conference Chair.
For the past 5 summers, I have served as an Admissions Coach for USC’s Bovard Scholars Program — a 3-week residential program that works with high achieving, rising seniors from under-resourced schools and I match them with top-tier universities while walking them through the college application process. In 2019, I was named the Lead Admissions Coach — a position they created for me!
In my free time, I enjoy playing and coaching sports (my 9 year old daughter, Natalie, plays soccer, softball and golf — basketball is next!!). Fun fact: I’m a HUGE Disneyland and Portland Trailblazers fan.
