Introduction

I work closely with each of my students and their families to successfully embark on and manage the college exploration and application process, taking out the stress along the way.

I have over fifteen years of experience working with students and helping them achieve their academic and personal goals. I believe that each student is unique, and therefore, deserves a personalized plan to navigate this process. I love empowering my students and watching them achieve their goals and find success.

A crucial component of my work is alleviating the stress and pressure that often come with this process and I am here to help you navigate it.
