Admissions Counselor Jacob Harris






Jacob Harris, B.S.

Senior Admissions Counselor

JHarris@sherman.edu

Where are you from, and how long have you lived in the Upstate?

I was born and raised right here in Boiling Springs, SC.

What first drew you to Sherman College of Chiropractic?

I had been working in higher educations, specifically admissions, for five years and was ready for a change. I had no prior chiropractic knowledge but applied for an opening when the opportunity became available. The rest is history!

How long have you been an admissions counselor at Sherman College?

This July will mark my third year at Sherman.

What about chiropractic do you find most interesting?

I’ve enjoyed learning how adjustments affect different areas of the body and learning about the innate intelligence the body has to heal itself.

What is your favorite part of your job?

Easy, the STUDENTS! I also love the family atmosphere that can be felt all around campus!

What is one piece of advice you would give to prospective students?

Do your own research and visit the different schools! Be sure that you job shadow, regardless of the field.

What is something interesting about you?

I am a database for useless knowledge: songs, movies, sports, pop culture, you name it!

What is your favorite local restaurant?

Miyako Sushi Group. Who doesn’t love sushi?

What is your favorite thing to do on the weekends?

Relaxing by a body of water or watching sports on my couch.

Admissions Counselor Will TuckerWill Tucker, B.S.

Admissions Counselor

WTucker@sherman.edu

Where are you from, and how long have you lived in the Upstate?

I am from Demopolis, AL, and I have been living in the Upstate for a year and a half.

What first drew you to Sherman College of Chiropractic?

The work environment and culture was what stuck out to me initially. Whenever I would visit campus with my wife before I moved here, I was struck by the family culture and environment that radiated from everyone on campus.

How long have you been an admissions counselor at Sherman College?

I have been with Sherman for a year and two months.

What about chiropractic do you find most interesting?

I thought it was interesting that chiropractic care can directly affect multiple aspects of your body, and not just the neck and back area like I had previously thought. It really struck me that chiropractic is for your entire body and not just your back and neck!

What is your favorite part of your job?

I love getting to travel to many different places around the country and getting to see different college campuses. I never traveled much growing up, so branching out and getting to see many new places while telling students about chiropractic and the benefits it has is a double win for me!

What is one piece of advice you would give to prospective students?

Learn how to manage your time effectively, and practice new study habits. Most students have not endured the type of schooling that is presented at Sherman, and being in class for seven hours a day and then having to study for different quizzes and tests on top of that can be very taxing. So learning how to study effectively and how to manage your time will be critical to your success as a student at Sherman.

What is something interesting about you?

I am a huge sports guy. I love Alabama sports and watching PGA Tour golf!

What is your favorite local restaurant?

I really like Delaney’s Irish Pub or Cribbs Kitchen. It’s hard to pick between the two.

What is your favorite thing to do on the weekends?

My wife and I like to get out to the park and walk our dog, Cooper. If we aren’t doing that, I also enjoy playing golf or softball.
