Biography

Having experienced the entire college academic process from admission to enrollment, retention and graduation, I know firsthand the uniqueness that makes a college the right fit for a student. Throughout my years working closely with students I learned to identify intrinsic characteristics such as the ability to become a skilled scientist or an ability to develop complex strategies that help one understand politics or social issues, among others.

Based on my interaction with students and parents alike during my years as a college administrator, I am able to determine how and which skills can make a student the best candidate for an institution of higher learning by assessing a student’s strengths and matching those with the right College or University.

My purpose in providing college admissions assistance stems from my profound conviction that with the proper guidance, every student can vastly improve his/her opportunities for a  brighter future in a field that will be both stimulating  and highly rewarding.

Every person has the right to pursue happiness in life, what a better way to do so than by finding the ideal school and the best possible career.
