Sheneya Academic Coordinator

Sheneya Carter

Academic Coordinator

Hi Mather!  I’m looking forward to helping you navigate all of your academic and administrative requirements, such as preparing documents for Administrative Board petitions, the premed application process, tracking your progress toward graduation, maintaining your student files, recommendation letters, and answering any questions that you have. 

Before Mather, I was on an engagement team that helped school leaders in K-12 develop curriculum and programming that increased students’ academic achievement, and trained teachers to work more effectively with students and families. I was also developing and managing STEM postsecondary partnerships at local universities. I’m passionate about education and supporting students in accessing resources that support their academic growth and overall well-being. I have a Bachelor of Science in Biology and I'm currently in a master's program at HGSE.  I’m also a Boston native who enjoys traveling, reading, and spending time with family and friends.  

Please feel free to stop by the office for help or just to chat! 

Virtual Office Hours: Thursdays 1-2PM
