Ms. Knapp

Associate Director of Admissions

As the Associate Director of Admissions, Ms. Knapp combines her passion for education and working with families daily. Both of her degrees are from Elon University – a Bachelor of Arts in Corporate Communications & Spanish and a Master of Business Administration.

Ms. Knapp worked in the college admissions office at her alma mater in a variety of roles from traveling and recruiting students across many states to managing the campus visit program that greeted 13,000 families annually. Prior to working at BASIS Independent McLean, Ms. Knapp worked at an educational technology company, WebAssign (later acquired by Cengage Learning), managing technical content developers – individuals responsible for converting textbooks in the STEM areas into an online instructional system.

Ms. Knapp is excited about her role in helping connect families to the BASIS Independent community. The curriculum here excites her the most. She believes in the liberal arts foundation with a strong focus in STEM is best to prepare students for life after BASIS Independent, no matter the career path.

When Ms. Knapp is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her Goldendoodle, Canton, or planning her next trip with her husband.
