Patricia Tucker

College Advisor

After graduating from Carleton College with a BA in Latin American Studies, BG (Patricia) joined Teach for America, working as a kindergarten through eighth-grade Spanish teacher in Gary, Indiana. Teaching in Gary was BG’s first introduction to the world of college-prep charter schools where she developed her love for college access. Subsequently, BG moved to Boston and became one of two founding college counsellor at KIPP Academy Lynn Collegiate and the Varsity softball coach. During her last year at KIPP, BG served as the Director of College Counselling and worked to share her enthusiasm for the college application process with her sometimes-begrudging students. She is excited to join the A-List team and continue serving as a college adviser here in the UK! When she is not working with students, BG is playing ultimate frisbee with her husband and enjoying long runs with her 100-pound dog, Riggins.
