Kelly Lootz (she/her/hers) serves as the Associate Director of Admissions for the Full-Time MBA program.  

Lootz has over eight years of experience working with candidates looking to advance their careers. She launched her profession in sales and corporate recruitment but found her purpose in the higher education sector. Most recently, Lootz worked as the recruitment manager with the University of the Pacific to assist in launching new graduate programs within the School of Health Sciences. She has a long history of working with both domestic and international students to aid in achieving their academic and professional goals.  

Originally from Massachusetts, Lootz has called five different states “home” and credits her love for adventure on these experiences. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies from Western Kentucky University while traveling the world as a national championship speech and debate competitor. She then went on to coach the team at the University of the Pacific and is currently working to complete her M.A. in Communication.  

In her free time, she continues to volunteer as a speech and debate coach. You can also find her enjoying the great outdoors camping in Santa Cruz, skiing in Tahoe, or joining her dog, cat, and husband for a California coast road trip. She also has a soft spot for San Francisco dim sum.  

Lootz is passionate about connecting folks with opportunities and looks forward to working with you.
