Charting Your Path to College
A former managing director at a Fortune 500 financial services company and a classically trained professional violist, I bring my unique perspective and relevant personal experience to my educational consulting practice. With an MBA in finance from Columbia University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in music from Wesleyan University, I recognize that career paths do not necessarily follow a straight line. Whether my students have a clear plan or are first uncovering their interests, I encourage them to approach the college search and application process with self-reflection and an open mind, two essential components for finding the right college fit and telling their own stories.
When I launched my practice in 2008, I drew upon the synergies from my prior professional experiences. By combining my business acumen, creative sensibilities and college expertise, I have developed ways to help my students identify appropriate schools, find and express their unique voice throughout the application, and stay on track and focused. My coaching style consistently stresses taking ownership and developing the confidence to be one’s own advocate through the college process and beyond. As a mentor and the mother of three daughters, I am keenly aware of the importance of providing guidance, structure and inspiration to a young person while helping that individual develop a sense of self.
