Liz Woods, Dean of Admissions
I joined the ACHS team in February 2020. I have a B.S. in Communication Studies from the University of Kansas and an M.A. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I have 20 years of experience in a variety of industries but found higher education six years ago and immediately fell in love. I look forward to bringing curiosity and passion for helping students to the ACHS admissions team. I traded the brutal Chicago winters for the rainy PNW and couldn’t be happier! I spend my free time exploring Portland’s neighborhoods, watching/playing sports, and day trips to the coast.
Amanda Heller, Associate Dean of Admissions
I have worked in admissions for over 10 years. My educational background includes undergraduate and graduate work in Communications at a traditional university, and I completed my MBA online. I have also taken some courses with our college, NAT 101, RES 501, & NUT 509. I am very familiar with how online courses work, the expectations of an online student, as well as the structure of our specific courses. In regards to the admissions process, I am well acquainted with the process of transferring credits, the process of applying for/utilizing VA benefits, and assisting students in choosing funding options for their education. If you are thinking about changing degree programs, colleges, or advancing your career - I can definitely assist and help you coordinate taking a step towards starting your education with ACHS. I truly enjoy partnering with motivated students, watching them succeed, and graduate.
Molly Sykes, Senior Admissions Advisor
I have worked in admissions and student services for five years. I have taken classes both online and on-campus and hold a Bachelors in Elementary Education and a Masters of Science in Leadership. I have a personal interest in holistic healthcare and am proud to support others who are beginning or continuing their journey into this profession. My previous experiences in higher education as a student and now as an advisor, have enabled me to 1understand the unique challenges of navigating the process of applying and attending college successfully. I am excited to learn more about your goals and interests within holistic healthcare and will be happy to share opportunities and benefits of earning a certificate, diploma or degree at ACHS…or maybe just taking a class to learn more!
Chelsea Phillips, Admissions Advisor
I am honored to be part of the admissions team at ACHS. I have always loved holistic living and incorporating healthy practices with my family and lifestyle. I have a Bachelors in Linguistics and I draw from my 8 years experience as a health coach when assisting students in choosing what program we offer that will lead them to their ultimate dreams and goals in life!
Brady Huffman, Admissions Advisor
I am excited to be part of the team here at ACHS. Having spent much of my time in my undergraduate counseling and advising fellow students, I have a passion for helping students achieve their goals. I hope to eventually receive my Doctoral degree in psychology and become a counseling psychologist. I am originally from Fargo, North Dakota and moved here five years ago to open up my perspective on the world. I love finding innovative ways to live holistically and am looking forward to working with people of all interests.
Amy Swinehart, Director of Alumni and Career Services
I have worked in admissions for the past six years and have been a part of ACHS for 15 years. I have always had an interest in holistic living and how to best incorporate that into the lives of my family and friends. I believe in higher education and how important the decision-making process is when taking that next step in committing to your studies. I am here to assist you every step of the way with determining what program we offer will best fit not only your educational goals, but personal and professional as well!
