I remember how difficult the college application process was when I was in high school. I was overwhelmed by the number of choices, the different applications and what I needed to do in terms of financial aid. There are a lot of great high school counselors, but I did not have one of them.
I was at the receiving end of some poor advising and it cost me time and money. (Even if you have one of the great counselors, Washington State has one of the worst counselor-student ratios in the United States.) My experience sparked me to help other students.
I worked as a private college admissions advisor, and then as an international student advisor at a community college. I completed a Master’s degree in Education and then opened my practice as an independent college admissions advisor.
I live in the great City of Mukilteo with my husband and two Golden Retrievers. I am an active member of the Kiwanis Club of Mukilteo. Working with students and being involved in my local community is where I thrive.
