Chazeray Ewing has joined Chatfield College as a financial aid counselor at the Over-the-Rhine (OTR) campus. Although Chazeray is new to staff, she is not new to Chatfield or the financial aid department.
“I am pleased that Chazeray has joined the Chatfield financial aid team. She previously worked in the OTR financial aid department under the work study program and did a great job helping students with their financial aid applications and supporting the financial aid counselor. Chazeray has the unique perspective of understanding our financial aid services as both a student and administrator which is very helpful as she works to support our students and staff,” said Robert Elmore, Chief Financial Officer.
In her role, Chazeray will offer support and guidance to incoming students as they navigate the enrollment process. With a background in student loan collections at a private company, she hopes to inform students before they make unwise financial decisions that will follow them.
“I feel like I can understand the students, especially non-traditional students, because I sat in the same chair not that long ago. I hope to really make a difference, to make sure they receive all the help they need,” she said.
Chazeray is just one class short of finishing her associate degree and will walk across the stage at Chatfield’s spring graduation. Upon graduating, she plans to continue her education by earning a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education.
Chazeray resides in the west side of Cincinnati.
