  • Veronica hails from Jalisco, México, and has a bachelor’s in communication from the University of Utah. She was initially drawn to Westminster’s sense of community—something she still says is one of her favorite parts of the college.

    During her time here, she’s noticed that the key to our community is Westminster’s emphasis on empowering one another: “When one rises, we all rise.” Veronica loves that her job allows her to help young adults work towards and achieve their academic goals—so don’t be afraid to avsk for help.

    During lunch, you can often find her relaxing by Emigration Creek behind the library, enjoying the sounds of nature.

    "My favorite book is One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. My favorite food is Mexican food: tacos, tamales, enchiladas, pozole, chilaquiles… you name it, I most likely like it! My favorite movie is Mean Girls, and yes, Aaron Samuels’s hair looks sexy pushed back."

    Veronica counsels students from the following states:

    Utah, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio

  • Kylie is a Salt Lake City native and has a bachelor’s in psychology with a minor in women and gender studies from Utah State University.

    She knew she was in a vibrant and inclusive space from the moment she stepped onto the Westminster campus. It was the place for her. Now that she’s here, she loves the supportive atmosphere of the first-year admissions team. Kylie hopes that incoming students “don’t get bogged down by the little things and use their time at Westminster to explore who they are, what they love, and how they can make a lasting impact.” Not a small order, but definitely an important one.

    When she’s not at work you may find her enjoying Salt Lake’s vibrant music scene, especially if Louis the Child comes to town.

    "My dream lifestyle would be to live in a beautiful, modern house near the mountains and a body of water, with a vacation home near the beach. I would be a dedicated career woman who has a passion for traveling, eating the best food, and attending spectacular music venues all around the world."

    Kylie counsels students from the following states:

    Utah, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska.

  • Wes came to Utah from Reno, Nevada, and has a bachelor’s in international studies and leadership studies from University of Denver.

    He’s also currently working on his MBA at Westminster, which is providing him with inside knowledge of the student experience. For Wes, the best part of Westminster is our professors. “They are always willing to go the extra mile for students, whether it’s giving career advice, life advice, or just catching up over coffee.” He even knows a few students who have invited professors to their weddings.

    His advice to incoming students? “Get involved—if you just focus on your grades, you’ll miss out on a lot of amazing opportunities.” Outside of work, you can often find Wes writing, starting—but not quite finishing—story after story. At this point, he likely has thousands of unfinished writings.

    "I’m really inspired by Gen Z. This generation is getting involved, they’ve turned out to vote in record numbers, they’re organizing nationwide movements surrounding gun-control, and they are refusing to take a backseat or be told they’re too young. They speak truth to power, and that is inspiring."

    Wes counsels students from the following states:

    Utah, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota

  • Elhom is from San Diego, California, and came to Utah as a student at Westminster, where she earned a bachelor’s in political science.

    One of the highlights of her time at the college—as a student and staff—is how excited our students are to learn. “The excitement is contagious on campus.” Elhom hopes incoming students follow the advice her advisor gave her when she was a student: “Never back away from what you believe in—it’s okay to push back.”

    After work, it’s possible she’ll be home making her grandmother’s measurement-less recipe for fesenjan, an Iranian dish made of pomegranate paste, ground walnuts, and rice.

    "I would bring Duct Tape. It’s so practical! You can make a house, a boat, catch food, patch up wounds, and create splints. I mean there’s nothing you can’t do with duct tape so that way I wouldn’t be stranded on the island forever."

    Elhom counsels students from the following states:

    Utah, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, and Louisiana.

  • Sally came to Westminster from Bend, Oregon, and earned her bachelor’s in vocal performance from the college.

    From her time as a student and as a staff member, Sally has realized that she’s “never been a part of another company or institution that has as tightly woven a community as Westminster.” Her coworkers, peers, and former professors always check in to see how she’s doing—and vice versa. “Everyone looks out for one another.” Sally firmly believes that “no amount of advice will fully prepare you for college,” but she still suggests incoming students have an open mind, stay curious, and ask questions—it’s what helped her most.

    You might find her hiding out in the Vieve Gore Concert Hall in Jewett, reliving her fond memories of opera productions, her senior recital, and a handful of really great voice lessons.

    "I dream of performing full-time as an opera singer. I’m well on my way to that goal through regular performances with Utah Opera."

    Sally counsels students from every state across the nation.

  • Originally from Oceanside, California, Q earned her bachelor’s in international studies from the University of Utah and her master’s in community leadership from Westminster.

    Her time as a student and staff member at Westminster has pushed her to be a critical thinker in everything she does. Above all, Q loves that the Westminster community is filled with like-minded people who challenge her daily. She wants incoming students to know that they “don’t need to have their lives all figured out coming into college—most people don’t! College is designed for discovery—especially self-discovery. Just take your time and be open to exploring outside of your comfort zone.”

    Q’s time outside of work includes enjoying the four seasons—something she never had growing up in Southern California.

    "Unashamedly, my mom is my hero! She inspires me to work hard regardless of circumstance, to have courage despite my doubts, and to love wholly even in a world filled with hate. I’m my best version of myself because of her."

    Quincey counsels students from the following states:

    Utah, Nevada, California, and Hawaii
