Welcome to planning for the rest of your amazing life! I want to help you to discover your strengths, interests, and talents, and support you as you plan for your future. I have been counseling students and helping them reach for their dreams for more than 15 years, and I have guided hundreds of students toward achieving their goals.
I believe in every student’s ability to learn and grow from wherever they are starting from. Preparing for college applications should start early, though it is NEVER too late to plan the next steps in your journey. Applying to college can be fun. I love helping students tell their stories, and the writing process has the potential to be one of the most powerful parts of your application.
If you are in grade 11, you have a lot of control over how you finish this school year. Now is the time to plan ahead to craft an incredible college list, and to begin to write essays that helps your personality come alive on your application! Being authentically YOU is the key.
I have lived, traveled, and worked all over the world, and these experiences help to shape the way I work with students. I believe that an open mind, a sense of humor, and a spirit of adventure will get you far in life. I also believe that your personal well-being is key to success in learning and gaining acceptance to colleges that hold incredible opportunities for you.
My experience as a college counselor in several incredible high schools is complemented by my background in supporting student mental health and well-being. This allows me to create plans that will help you to manage even the most stressful moments of this process. Get organized, break a large process down into small tasks, and start moving forward, my friends :)
I started my career as a counselor at Hunter College High School in New York City where students aim high (like, really high) and get in! HCHS also boasts a solid percentage of first generation college students gaining acceptance to highly selective colleges. I was a core part of the team founding the college counseling program at Leman Manhattan Preparatory School. Additionally I have worked with incredibly ambitious international students at Shanghai American School and Yokohama International School, and so am very well-versed in the experiences of students with a variety of backgrounds applying to the US.
If you would like to better understand your strengths and how to leverage them, plan your high school years to maximize your opportunities, and create a college application that is going to help you to highlight your best qualities, then let's connect.
