Nick Eigenschenk, Sr. Admission Advisor

Meet Nick Eigenschenk, Sr. Admission Advisor here at First Institute for the past 14 years. Nick is passionate about interviewing individuals that are looking for a change or looking to move up in their current practice. The best part of his job is to get to see everyone from the first interview to watching them grow with confidence not only with their skill set but self-confidence as well. Everyone that comes into First Institute is here for a reason and he loves to peel back the layers to find out why.

First Institute is Family; First Institute is a team. There are a lot of schools that are out there and we pride ourselves on playing a role in everyone’s growth while at First Institute. The Beier family which established First Institute in 1982 understands that Family comes first and that is what you will feel when you are here. A couple of fun interesting facts about Nick is that he found out 3 years ago that he was born with only one Kidney. Nick has two boys who are play baseball and football and he loves to coach and watch them play.

Nick’s favorite quote is:

· Make today your Day One and not One Day!
