Coral Azarian joined the Rowland Hall community in July 2011 as the development associate. The following summer, she left to pursue graduate studies in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy at the University of Utah. While completing her M.Ed. at the U, Coral served as the graduate assistant for student involvement at Westminster College, where she stayed on as the coordinator for student involvement, leadership, and orientation after graduating in 2014. She returned to Rowland Hall in the summer of 2015 as the Director of Financial Aid/Associate Director of College Counseling. She later transitioned to the Student Council Adviser while continuing her role in college counseling after implementing a prior year financial aid process for returning Rowland Hall families in the spring of 2016. She then focused fully on the role of Associate Director of College Counseling and, in the summer of 2023, moved into the role of Co-Director of College Counseling. Prior to moving to Utah in 2011, Coral worked as an admissions counselor at both Providence College and her alma mater, Stonehill College, where she graduated with a BA in history in 2009.

Professional Engagement: Coral is a member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), the Rocky Mountain Association for College Admission Counseling (RMACAC), and the Association of College Counselors in Independent Schools (ACCIS). From 2017 to 2021, she served as the Utah delegate and mentorship chair on the executive board of the Rocky Mountain Association for College Admission Counseling, and from 2017 to 2018, she was asked to serve as the NACAC Conference Social Committee co-chair for the national conference that was held in Salt Lake City in September of 2018. In addition to her committee work, Coral has presented at regional conferences for both RMACAC and the New England Association of College Admissions Counseling (NEACAC), national conferences for ACCIS, and at the NACAC Conference in Louisville, Kentucky, in 2019 on incorporating student leadership into the college counseling process.

Personal: Coral grew up on Cape Cod in Massachusetts and loves heading back to the East Coast any chance she gets to visit family and friends. In 2011, she and her college sweetheart moved to Salt Lake and married in the summer of 2018. In January 2020, they welcomed their first daughter, Cameron, and in February 2022, they welcomed their second daughter Maggie. They are currently enjoying life as a family of four.
