I started my career as an assistant director of admissions for Yale University. I was also a liaison for several sports teams (swimming and lacrosse) and coordinated on-campus orientation programs and housing placement. I spent most of my admissions career, however, as an independent college advisor. With over two decades of experience, I have successfully guided hundreds of students from both public and private high schools and varying backgrounds and interests/skills to all sizes and types of colleges and universities.
