About

I have been doing admissions work for my entire 20 year career. During the past five years, I have worked as an Independent Educational Consultant where I have assisted several students each year to successfully apply to Harvard and other competitive universities. I am a Harvard graduate myself and I enjoy helping students who want to have a successful, stress-free application season. I also have experience working with students who are from across the globe and first generation students. I try to keep the number of students that I work with low so that all can enjoy individualized attention.

I am a high touch counselor who enjoys getting to know my students well.

In order to do this, I exhibit good listening skills and patience. I have gotten students into competitive colleges because I believe in the potential of each student and can help them achieve their goals.
