Biography

My goal is to guide students and their parents through the college admission process. Services include selection of appropriate high school courses, determining where to apply, application completion including timeline development, extracurricular activity guidance, essay review, administration of the Strong Interest Inventory to assist in career awareness, and the final college selection for enrollment. I assist students in finding the college program where they feel comfortable and "at home." Creating a timeline for the admission process, ACT/SAT test prep, college visit preparation, completing applications, reviewing essays, and assisting students with financial aid and scholarship opportunities are all part of the services provided. I am certified to administer the Strong Interest Inventory to assist students in discovering their career interests.
