Embrace the positives
and reduce the negatives
of the college admissions process

I help students understand their values and share their unique stories to a manageable group of colleges and universities, where they can succeed, inside and outside the classroom, while developing the skills necessary for personal and professional success.


I assist students through the complex world of college admissions, so they can achieve results that will give them strong options for personal and professional success.

Without proper guidance, students and their families can easily be controlled by the increasingly competitive world of college admissions.  Students, listening to inaccurate information from well-intentioned friends and receiving a huge amount of promotional material from schools, have a difficult time embracing their strengths and finding the right mix of places that will allow them to reach their dreams.  When that happens, they end up with options that are not a good fit, too few in number or too high in cost, increasing stress for everyone involved.
