HOW I WORK

 

How do you know if a college is a “good fit?"  I guide families through the maze of the college admissions process, advise students how to best present who they are to colleges, and help organize the process to reduce stress.

WHO I AM

 

I'm an experienced, knowledgeable independent college admissions consultant working with students in Montgomery County, Maryland, the Washington, DC metro area, and across the country.  I'm passionate about helping students successfully tell their stories to colleges and achieve their college goals.

HOW WE CAN WORK TOGETHER

I help students--both those applying for first-year admission and transfer students--through each stage of the college admissions process.  I provide comprehensive advice and also work with students and families on discrete parts of the process, such as college list development or application essays.
