College Counseling

I have spent the last nine years helping students achieve admissions to top colleges. My specialty is helping students find their voice and convey their story to the admissions officers. As a former interviewer for Dartmouth College, I have seen the admissions process from the inside. I have also been through the process myself, and I understand the stress and anxiety caused by college admissions. I graduated from Dartmouth College with high honors and earned a Ph.D. from Cornell Medical School. I understand how opaque the system seems and how hard it is to know what the schools are looking for. I have seen the system from all angles, and I am eager to use that knowledge to help students succeed! My college prep students have been admitted to Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Cornell, Dartmouth, Vanderbilt, University of Chicago, Johns Hopkins, University of Pennsylvania, Northwestern, and many, many more.
