As a high school counselor for 22 years, I saw firsthand the complexity of the college admission process and how overwhelming it can be to busy families who want their child to represent themselves in the most positive light and maximize their admissions opportunities, but worry they are missing key aspects of this process. With years as the lead counselor at Blue Valley North High School, named Best College Prep School in the Kansas City Metro Area, as well as the state of Kansas, by Niche.com, I have been fortunate to work with some of the region's most academically talented students, as well as those whose talents shine in a variety of areas from leadership to social to problem solving and beyond.
As an independent education consultant, I am now able to bring all my focus to my passion for assisting families in demystifying the college application process. I offer a personalized, detailed roadmap to all stages of the college exploration, preparation and application process.
I work with each student to identify their interests, strengths and aspirations, and help them develop a balanced college list and a compelling application to stand out in the eyes of admissions representatives.
I guide students through every step of the process to make informed decisions in today's competitive admissions landscape.
I would love to be your partner in this exciting stage of your family's life.
