A Pittsburgh native and seasoned veteran of selective college admission offices, Keith began his professional career in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at Carnegie Mellon University. After relocating to Washington, DC, Keith spent several years in the Office of Admission at American University. Upon the birth of his daughter Esther (Ellis ‘28), Keith was privileged to spend time as a stay at home parent before returning to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at Carnegie Mellon, where he most recently served as Associate Director of Admission/Marketing Communication. As a first-generation college student and an ardent supporter of access and equity in higher education, Keith seeks to maximize both fit (in terms of a complementary college/university) and attainment, securing for our Ellis girls opportunities and outcomes that far outpace those of other competitive secondary school environments. Keith holds a BA in English and Theatre from Allegheny College and an MA in Literary and Cultural Studies from Carnegie Mellon University.
