My process

I approach the college process as a collaboration: the student knows who they are and what goals they have for college, and I have the knowledge to help them put together a strong application that showcases their personality as effectively as possible. To me, building a strong relationship with each client is the foundation of being a successful college counselor, as that trust and understanding is essential to providing personalized, useful advice.

“Thank you so much for your help. Honestly, the review was confusing at first, but you were right when you said I would be able to easily get into the flow of things. Your editing style helped me out a lot and I feel that I would not be able to get as much of my own voice and style out there if I hadn't chosen you to edit my essay."
