Bluefield College has several very helpful and dedicated counselors to work with our prospective students. They are available to help you plan your path through your college career.

Elizabeth Decker

Traditional Admissions Counselor



In May of 2015, I graduated from Bluefield College with a Bachelor of Arts in Music with a concentration in Voice. As an active student in the Music Department, I performed with Variations, Praise Singers, and the Bluefield College Concert Band. Participating in the vocal ensembles allowed me to travel extensively throughout the state of Virginia. Throughout my time at BC, I served as the Vice President of Alpha Delta and played the keyboard for the Baptist Collegiate Ministries Band on campus. Studying at Bluefield helped me to find my true passion. I am very excited to continue blazing my trail at Bluefield College as a member of the Admissions staff. Please feel free to call me anytime, and let me share with you how you can be a part of the Bluefield College Family.

Timothy Hegerich

Transfer Counselor



My name is Timothy Hegerich and I am an admissions counselor here at Bluefield College. I graduated in May of 2008 with my B.A. in Christian Studies from Brewton-Parker College. During my time as a student, I was active in several ministry programs on campus and online through Christian discussion boards and chat programs. After graduation, I used my familiarity with online communication to begin my career in Enrollment Management, joining the Admissions Staff at BPC. I am also an ordained Southern Baptist minister, having served as a Bi-vocational Pastor for more than two years while still working for my alma mater. Through these experiences, I found that my career needed to be in Christian higher education, serving as a guide to lead students into an understanding of how wonderful and important it is to learn about your future career while building your relationship with Christ at the same time. God led my family and I to Bluefield College, an institution that shares my desire to see every student who enrolls in our classes grow in their knowledge of their career and the Lord. Call me anytime, and let me share with you how you can be a part of the Bluefield Family!

Alex Marcus

Traditional Admissions Counselor



My name is Alex Marcus and I’m an admissions counselor here at Bluefield College. I graduated in May of 2011 with a B.A. in Communication Studies from the University of Tennessee (Go Vols!). Throughout my time in Knoxville, I was involved in Student Government, my local church, and was also a volunteer Young Life leader. In these roles, I learned how to effectively communicate with others and how to engage in meaningful relationships. Upon graduation, I interned at the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., where I served as the Policy Intern. In this position, I researched and wrote about various public policy related issues. Then, I hit the campaign trail, raising funds for various house and senate candidates during the Fall 2012 election season. While I enjoyed my time in D.C., getting back into the educational setting was something that had been in the back of my mind for a while. I’m so excited to be a part of the Bluefield College family and would love to help in any way that I can as you go through the college application process. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Amy Walker

Traditional Admissions Counselor



My name is Amy Walker and I am a Traditional Admissions Counselor here at Bluefield College. I graduated in May 2012 from Concord University with a B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Sociology. During my time at Concord, I conducted psychology-related research projects, presented at their Undergraduate Research Day in 2011 and 2012, and in the 2012 Psychology Tri-State Conference. Throughout my college career, I developed a passion for volunteering to work with teenagers. I later joined the leadership team for a young adult’s ministry helping with event set-up, outreach, and mission trips. Before coming to Bluefield College, I was a treatment assistant at a non-profit organization that promoted mental and spiritual wellness in teens, especially through personal behavior modification programs in a day-to-day living facility. This further developed my passion to work with teens and young adults, to support and better their lives by guiding them to opportunities. This is why I chose to become an admissions counselor at Bluefield College. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!
