Ashley Deck has been named Admissions Coordinator at Galveston College. Previously, she served as the assistant director of scholarships and recruiting at Texas A&M University at Galveston.
In her new role, Deck is responsible for recruiting, student admissions, customer service, and admissions support services.
Originally from Irving, Deck moved to Galveston to attend Texas A&M University at Galveston, where she graduated with two bachelor’s degrees—one in Marine Biology and another in Marine Fisheries.
Following graduation, she worked for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration as a fisheries biologist in Alaska and the Northeast.
Deck then moved back to Texas and changed her career direction to higher education. She worked in the Office of Student Enrollment Services at Texas A&M University at Galveston for the past seven years where she had many different roles in admissions, scholarships, and event planning.
“Ashley stood out as the ideal person to coordinate our admissions program at Galveston College,” said Ron Crumedy, Associate Vice President for Student Services. “Her love of Galveston and her track record focused on students and student success are tremendous assets to the college.”
Deck and her husband, Nate, have a two-year-old daughter, Ava. She enjoys reading and going on nature walks.
“I am so excited to be a part of the Galveston College community,” she said. “Everyone has been so welcoming, and I am so happy to be here.”
