  • Enrollment Builders is a higher education admissions company, providing contact center services for institutions like The University of Alabama, Missouri Baptist University, and Rocky Mountain College.
  • Purchased in May 2021, Briar Hill Stables is a horse farm located on 15+ acres in Lexington, Kentucky. This horse farm is currently under construction and features dedicated office space and fiber internet.

No two days will be the same in this role. You’ll be supporting a new horse business, an established higher education services business, AND an active family. We have a great team, and we work hard to build a culture of performance, work-life balance, and belonging. We’re growing rapidly and most days, you’ll have to adapt quickly, react decisively, and pick up important tasks you didn’t expect. If you are the kind of person who is excited by change, interested in helping nurture growing companies, and enjoy diving in to do what needs to get done, then this might be for you!

If all this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you!
