Casa Loma College Welcomes Kimberly Duncan as New Registrar!

As you pass by the third-floor offices, you will see a new face in the Registrar’s Office. We can thank Google for Kimberly’s arrival at Casa Loma as she had heard through the grapevine there was a registrar position open – she googled Casa Loma and there were so many positive comments from former students about the staff and faculty that she was immediately impressed and decided to apply for the position.  Kimberly knew she wanted to work with a great team, and now here she is – working with the team she read about.

Kimberly moved to California with her husband from Columbus Ohio due to his job transfer 20 years ago.  She has no children and unfortunately no pets, due to her husband’s allergies; however, she is very fond of French Bulldogs.  Her career as a Registrar began 16 years ago at DeVry University.  Kimberly enjoys registrar work and working with students – helping them to reach their goal of completing their degree.  She enjoys living in California because there is so much to do and so many places to visit.
