College admissions is more complex and competitive than ever before and can be challenging for families to navigate on their own. I build relationships with students and parents, working alongside them as an "expert friend" to create a collaborative admissions process that leads to success. My supportive approach, expertise and up-to-date knowledge will enable you to have more time, less stress and anxiety, maximize your potential for scholarship funds, maintain a peaceful parent/child connection and have fun as you make this exciting journey together.
I have seventeen years of experience as a college counselor and hold a Certificate in College and Career Counseling from UCLA. My practice is enhanced by my previous careers as an English teacher, middle and high school principal, and professional writer. I hold a BA in English from UC Berkeley, a MA in English and Creative Writing from Boston University, and a MA in Educational Leadership from St. Mary's College, as well as several teaching credentials.
I provide college admissions counseling throughout the San Francisco Bay Area or virtually throughout the U.S. and internationally.
