Nahod-Carlin held other positions at MHS that included marketing roles. She has also held positions with Live-360 and Live Nation.

“The approach to recruitment and enrollment in higher education is changing and we are adapting accordingly,” said Ivy Tech President Sue Ellspermann. “Ivy Tech is here to serve all Hoosiers, from traditional students to adults, those unemployed, those looking for a career change, or those planning to transfer to a four-year institution. The breadth of recruitment and enrollment needs to serve anyone looking for higher education to improve their life. We are excited that Jo is going to join the College with a fresh perspective to customer service and that student journey.”
