I have enjoyed a rewarding career on all sides of the college admissions field, recruiting and advsing, in all parts of the world, and with students of all ages and backgrounds. What I love most about my work is the ability to help students – in a wide variety of settings and locations – discover their passion for learning and experience personal success in their college search process.
As a college counselor it is my responsibility to reinforce basic lifelong skills such as self-advocacy, resourcefulness, communication and compassion. My hope is that throughout this association my students find happiness, a sense of accomplishment, compassion and an excitment for the myriad of possibilities this next step signifies and presents.
Every counseling relationship is built around the uniqueness of each individual student. I enjoy helping students find their own voice and inner strength. Every success story is built on many smaller moments upon which a student has taken control of his/her own process and put his/her best foot forward. To work with me means you learn to be your own person.
As a consultant for international recruitment it is my job to also to provide the perspective and interpersonal training to make that student's international transition successful. This includes on-the-ground perspectives on application reviews, expanding one's understanding of US universities beyond simply the Top 50, and cultural awareness training.
I hope sharing my expertise in the college admissions process will open doors and make educational accessible to all people in the US and around the world."
