I offer college admissions counseling in Claremont, California for high school students and transfer students looking for advice with college selections, application guidance, and application essays.  I have 15 years of independent educational consulting experience gained from working in private practice and with the community-based organization, Uncommon Good  where I continue to provide pro-bono services.  My philosophy encourages a student-centered college search that emphasizes and highlights a students strengths.  I am passionate about guiding students to their potential.
