East Bay Area
Teens, Young Adults

I offer college selection coaching, application management, and essay development and editing. My approach is ethical and balanced.

I am an experienced college counselor, essay editor, and application coach. I've been working with students one-on-one for fifteen years and I've worked as a teacher and administrator for the past 19 years. I managed all college and career programs for the San Francisco Unified School District for students who will be the first in their family to attend college. I oversaw college counseling as Dean of Studies at Lick-Wilmerding High School.  

I've worked with students from public and private schools, including dozens of students from Berkeley High School. I work with students via video chat which allows students to incorporate the college process into their homework time.

I have deep experience with the application criteria and process for the UC's, Cal State system, and private colleges nationwide. I also have experience with college transfer applications. 

My approach to the college process is balanced and ethical and a large part of my role is to manage the process so as to reduce anxiety and confusion for the student and parents.
