CHICOPEE, Mass. -- The College of Our Lady of the Elms has established a new Office of Graduate and Continuing Education Admission to streamline the application process for graduate, postbaccalaureate, and continuing education students.
The new office will focus on the recruitment, admission, and enrollment for all graduate and continuing education programs at Elms College.
“Prospective graduate students typically have different needs than undergraduates,” said Jonathan Scully, MBA, vice president of enrollment management and marketing at Elms College. “They need more flexibility, as well as reassurance that graduate study will fit into their lives and specific insight into how a graduate degree or certification will advance their careers. Our graduate admission counselors will support incoming graduate students and help them navigate the process.”
Nancy Davis, MBA, has been named director of the Office of Graduate and Continuing Education Admission. Davis, who holds a B.S. from Mount St. Mary's University and an MBA from Elms College, most recently served as business development specialist for the college’s MBA program and Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership for over three years. She previously worked as the director of career development at Elms for nearly five years, as director of career services at BHCI in Windsor, CT, and as a technical recruiter, both for CMC Technical in Virginia and independently.
“Nancy has been a part of the Elms community for eight years, and her ability to build relationships, recruit students, and represent all that is Elms College make her perfectly suited for this role,” Scully said.
Davis’s team will include two graduate admission counselors.
Undergraduate and transfer students will continue to work with the Office of Undergraduate Admission throughout the application, acceptance, and orientation process.

As a child, I was always sensitive to spirit and energy. My mother was very spiritual and never dismissed my experiences. In fact, she was able to explain so much to me at a very young age, and as I grew older, my connection to the spirit world subsided as I was going through life's lessons. It wasn't until a few years ago, when I lost my fiancé , that I was nudged back to my spiritual journey, and onto finding answers. I was hurting so badly and I didn’t know where to turn. My heart was shattered.
One evening, as I was in deep grief, I was on my computer googling the word "Grief" and came across a book that was written by an author and channeled from a spirit guide. That then led me to reading the material. I found myself absorbing all of the information and yearning for more. It opened up so much for me, and soon all the synchronicities starting happening.
I knew I was being guided and led by spirit.
It wasn’t long before I dived into the metaphysical, became a Usui Reiki practitioner, enrolled in psychic/mediumship courses to master my craft. Its been an amazing journey thus far. Being a mom of two daughters, and owning my own company as well, I’ve been able to share some of my experiences to help inspire, encourage, and motivate others that spirit has sent to me. I am entirely grateful to spirit as I have been led to serve a higher purpose.
