I have worked with students in the following areas:

Over 14 years, I have worked with a variety of students in all aspects of the college search process.  I have worked with students applying to 2 and 4-year colleges (including elite colleges and those with special admissions requirements), as well as those applying to gap year programs, post-graduate schools, and special needs programs.  I particularly enjoy working with first-generation students and students with special needs, as well as with families who need extra support throughout the process.   

Why I am passionate about college counseling:

I love helping students find colleges that are truly great matches for them.  College can be such an exciting time in a student’s life; there are many amazing opportunities and options out there. I find it very rewarding to help students achieve their goals.
