Meet the Advising Staff
Jonathan Lewis has served as Wheelock's associate director for student success since September 2010. In this role, he creates and delivers programs that help first- and second-year students at Wheelock engage in the community and persist toward graduation successfully.
Additionally, he serves as academic advisor for a cohort of honors students, directs summer and semester-long study abroad programs, and, along with colleagues in Student Life, oversees Wheelock's summer orientation for new students, known as "FYI."
Originally from South Florida, Jonathan studied theater and later completed his master's degree in Higher Education Administration & Policy at Northwestern University, in Evanston, IL. Since 2002, he has worked in both student affairs and academic services offices at Northwestern, The University of Chicago, and Bentley University.
He lives in Brookline with his partner and adorable schnauzer mix.
A native of New Jersey, David received both his B.A. in Human Development and M.A. in Developmental and Educational Psychology from Boston College. Having worked with numerous student groups during his time as an undergrad, and working closely with incoming first year students during his graduate program at Boston College led David down a path toward being a resource and strong advocate for students.
His passion for social justice and educational equality is a motivating factor in his daily life. It is for these reasons he came to Wheelock College in September of 2012 to take on the role of Student Success Specialist, in which he will be working closely with first year students as an advisor, guide, and source of support.
In David's spare time he enjoys watching movies, reading good books, and just enjoying all that Boston has to offer.
