Admissions Coordinator, Graduate Admissions
Graduate Programs

Isabella "Bella" Dolande is excited to join the Leeds Graduate Admissions team as an Admissions Coordinator.

Since graduating during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in May 2020, Bella has been blessed with an indirect career path and a broad array of experiences in multiple industries, including: music, theatre, higher education, start-ups, customer service, hospitality, graphic design, marketing, and the non-profit sector.  She has a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance and a Minor in Arts Management & Administration from the University of Texas at Austin. Two of Bella's greatest passions are finding creative solutions and building people up; she finds great joy in supporting the Graduate Admissions staff as well as students in the MBA and MS programs and helping them discover all the possibilities that Leeds has to offer.

In her free time, Bella enjoys singing, acting, and dancing in every local theater she can find, travelling, ice skating, and spending time with her fiancé and cat. You can find out more about her artistic career and latest roles at
