Ms. Tracy Bartlett Lively brings over 15 years of experience to her role as an Associate Consultant. She has served in positions responsible for admissions management, recruiting, and executive support at a variety of secondary and higher educational institutions including Chatham Hall in Chatham, Virginia and the University of Maryland European Division in Naples, Italy. She served most recently as the Transfer Admissions Coordinator and then Assistant to the President at Roanoke College in Salem, VA where she was the recipient of the Service to All Roanoke award for her exceptional job performance and making a positive difference in the College and local community.

When a family move took her to Michigan, Ms. Lively drew on her organizational, listening, and problem-solving skills to manage multiple projects and deadlines associated with the New Market Tax Credits program which brings accessible capital, jobs, goods, and services to underserved businesses and communities across the country. The wind-down of her NMTC work allowed Ms. Lively to join Academic Search and return to her passion for serving in education.

Ms. Lively earned her bachelor’s degree with honors in English from the University of Maryland and, in addition to serving as a Hospice volunteer, is currently completing her 800-hour Clinical Yoga Therapy instructor training.
