As an independent educational consultant (also known as an independent college counselor and mentor), I approach my work as a guide in a "choose your own adventure" novel, with the "adventure" being the future and the "novel" being life. This adventure is a serious and important one, not to be taken lightly. And it is a process that can certainly have lightness and--yes, even joy--in it!
I work with students from start to finish of the college admission’s process. I am not just a college counselor but I am essentially a coach, mentor, "fairy godmother auntie" and teacher rolled into one. While I don't make dreams come true with a swish of my wand, I do help to make my students' dreams clear and the application process be one of straightforwardness and ease.
