James Brey to transition from Enrollment Officer to Financial Aid Counselor
Brey, who joined the Finlandia staff last fall as an Enrollment Officer with Admissions, brings a wealth of experience to the position. He earned his Bachelor’s in Business Management from FinnU in 2012 and has worked as a retention representative for Prudential, director of sales and marketing and admissions at Gardenview Assisted Living and Memory Care, branch manager in training for Enterprise Rent-A-Car and at Fed Ex.
“I have dealt with money and aid in every job I’ve had, except Fed Ex,” he said. “So when this position opened up, I was excited and had to jump on the opportunity.”
Brey will be processing loans for parents and students and meeting with them during tours to discuss their financial aid and loan options.
For Brey, working in financial aid is personal.
“I’m most excited about helping students and parents afford college,” said Brey. “I went through the same things of finding more money to attend Finlandia, and when I got help from financial aid, I was extremely ecstatic about being able to afford and attend FinnU to pursue my degree in business.”Tags: Admissions, Financial Aid, James Brey, Office of Financial Aid
