Admissions Adviser
Emma Gonya


Roanoke College and the University of New Hampshire


I have been drawn to Exeter ever since I visited my sister (class of 2010) on campus. The drive of the students and the opportunities that Exeter offers continues to impress me and I am thrilled to be part of a community that is continually learning and evolving. After receiving my BA in Spanish from Roanoke College and my M.Ed. in Counselor Education from the University of New Hampshire, I worked in secondary and collegiate education helping students reach their educational goals. In 2020, the perfect position opened up for me at Exeter, assisting families with the application process. I am passionate about making the admissions process accessible and straightforward, especially for families who are not familiar with boarding schools. I thrive on improving processes and enjoy working with data and technology. I am thankful for the opportunity to connect with families around the world, and from a variety of backgrounds.

When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, son, two dogs, and twelve chickens. I am outside as much as possible and love skiing, mountain biking, surfing, and boating.
