Meet Our Admissions Director

A part of ULS for the past 15 years, Deb Smith is a one-woman welcome wagon. Maybe it’s her warm personality, the level of attention she showers on those she works with, or the fact that, as the parent of a ULS alum, she understands the concerns parents face, but both parents and students stay in touch with Deb long after graduation.   

Deb is most likely the first to greet you when you enter our campus. With almost 20 years of experience in admissions and school management, she can answer—or find the answer—to any question thrown her way.

0099 Debra SmithWelcome to University Lake School! I look forward to getting to know you, and your child, and answering your questions about the amazing opportunities afforded to your child at ULS.
