Jacob Ramirez Texas native now living in the Kansas City area since 2017. I joined Noodle Partners in August of 2020 but previously worked with a NP vendor advising for NYU Wagner’s Online MHA program since December 2018. It was my first foray into the world of higher education and it has been an incredible experience. The role has brought nothing but smiles and has been the most fulfilling job/career I have had to date. Building these relationships with students to assist them not only going through the application process but helping them overcome their fears they have built internally is a great feeling when you provide them the news that they were admitted after all their hard work. Prior to Noodle Partners and higher ed I worked a multitude of jobs like inside sales, real estate, call center jobs that focused on Flexible Spending Acct management, and retail. I actively invest in real estate, single family homes in particular, as a side business to my FT position with Noodle. Outside of work I love spending time with my wife and 2 girls where we spend a lot of time outside doing weather permitting activities. Lastly, I am a huge dog lover and advocate. I have 8 rescue dogs that bring so much joy into our family’s life.
