Since becoming a college counselor in 2010, I have helped hundreds of students find colleges that fit their individual needs. It has been a rewarding experience watching my students find their unique path to college and beyond.
Aside from working with my private students, I currently serve as the Director of College Counseling at a private high school in Temecula, California.
I received my Certificate in College Counseling from the University of California, Los Angeles. I am a member of National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), Western Association for College Admission Counseling (WACAC), and Independent Educational Consultant Association (IECA). My professional affiliations have allowed me to stay current on college admission trends and form relationships with representatives from colleges around the country.
I received my undergraduate degree in Literary Journalism from the University of California, Irvine in 2005 and my master's degree in Journalism from Columbia University in 2007. Prior to becoming a college counselor, I was a newspaper reporter, writing for publications in New York City and southern California. Now, I use my passion for writing to help students with their college application essays.
When I am not helping students with their applications and essays, I spend my time building Legos and reading books with my two sons. I love to cook, travel, and practice Pilates.
