About Skyler Paltell

Skyler Paltell graduated in 2015 from William & Mary with a degree in English. During her undergraduate years, Skyler was involved in Greek Life, Residence Life, and the Admission Office, and could usually be found somewhere around Lake Matoaka.

After graduation, Skyler moved to Colorado to begin a career in college admission at Colorado College, a small, highly selective liberal arts college in Colorado Springs, CO. Though she loves her job and the adventures that post-graduate life brings, Skyler misses W&M every day and hopes to soon return.
