About

I am a former teacher turned college advisor who saw a need in students receiving support for the college application process. I received training from professional associations and UCLA to gain the knowledge needed to work with families. I graduated from Univ. of Maryland, College Park and George Mason University. I am currently licensed in Maryland with an Administrator in Maryland, where I currently reside. My current hobbies include: learning Spanish and volunteering.
