Tiffany Blessing grew up in central Florida, and left to pursue her B.A. and M.Ed. in Counseling at the University of Virginia. While earning her degrees at Virginia, she worked in Undergraduate Admissions helping to unveil the AccessUVa campaign. Wanting to give snow a try, her professional career led her to Colgate University where she spent two years as the Coordinator of Multicultural Recruitment. During this time, she was fortunate to be in charge of interviews and applications for students in Florida, giving her an initial taste of the Shorecrest community. Mrs. Blessing then joined the admissions team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), working closely with students with special talents before most recently entering the independent school environment as an Associate Director of College Counseling in South Florida.
Mrs. Blessing brings a wealth of knowledge about the world of highly selective admissions, athletic recruitment, special academic programs and artistic portfolios. After years in college admissions, she was ecstatic to return to central Florida at Shorecrest in 2013, and to continue working with dynamic students through counseling.
Meghan Schneider works closely with students, families and college representatives to facilitate the college application process. For 14 years Mrs. Schneider was Shorecrest's College Counseling Associate and Bright Futures Coordinator before stepping into her role as Assistant Director of College Counseling. In the past, she has served as the College Advisor for the Phillips Exeter Academy Summer School in New Hampshire. There she organized seminars to educate a largely international population on the college application process, in addition to leading trips to a number of New England area universities. Mrs. Schneider has extensive experience in various roles on our campus including Homecoming Coordinator, diversity work and parent to three Chargers - Annie '15, Lily '19, and Dexter '23. She is a graduate of St. Lawrence University where she met her husband Erich, Shorecrest’s Interim Head of Upper School. Mrs. Schneider has a variety of interests off campus ranging from roller derby to needlepoint.
