Since founding Lahti Search Consultants in 1997, Terry Lahti has used the powerful combination of personal experience in admissions and enrollment management and an unmatched network to identify and connect top-quality enrollment professionals with positions at a wide range of colleges and universities. Her firm uses a distinctly personal approach as they develop a deep understanding of institutional culture, needs, and expectations. College clients have characterized Terry as “perceptive, persistent, confidence-inspiring” and able to conduct searches with “professionalism, attentiveness to detail and just plain grace.”
Terry began her career at the College of Saint Benedict/Saint John’s University in Minnesota as an admissions counselor and later served as director of recruitment at the University of Miami in Florida, director of admissions at Agnes Scott College in Georgia, and dean of admissions at Kalamazoo College in Michigan.
Terry holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the College of Saint Benedict and has completed extensive coursework in administration as part of the graduate program at the University of Notre Dame.
Bringing people together–be they friends, family or colleagues—is one of Terry’s greatest joys. She also enjoys long walks in the neighborhood, around the lakes, or in the woods. Terry divides her time between Lahti Search Consultants offices in Michigan and Minnesota.
