Guiding students on their academic journey is my passion. I strive to bring a calm objective voice to the often stressful and overwhelming college admissions process, cheering students on as they discover their own strengths and interests. I serve as the bridge between parents and students, replacing the much-feared battle of wills between parent and teen. My work experience comes from both sides of the admissions process and spans well over a decade. I have first hand knowledge of numerous colleges and universities often visiting over 25 campuses a year. As the mother of a college senior and a high school senior, I enjoy bringing all facets of my professional and personal life experiences to My College Fit. Highlights of my career include:
Working in undergraduate admissions at Duke University, The College of William & Mary, Dickinson College, and the University of Richmond.
Traveling extensively to secondary schools across the country to attract and matriculate competitive students to the above institutions, often times evaluating nearly 1,000 applications each admissions cycle.
- Serving as Co-Director of College Counseling at a college preparatory school where I worked with high school students through the entire college search, application and selection process.
- Maintaining an extensive network of college admissions professionals and counseling colleagues by regularly attending professional conferences and touring over 25 colleges a year.
