I love what I do. I have had the honor of working with students at Mira Costa High School in Manhattan Beach for five years. During that time, I have helped thousands of students manage the college application process and find colleges that meet their academic, geographic, and financial needs.
Hiring the right college counselor can help a student find colleges that can best meet his or her needs and make the process of applying to college less overwhelming and more productive.

Our goal is to help the student find and be admitted to colleges where he or she will thrive academically, socially, geographically, and financially.
We meet with the student and family members to discuss all of their needs and expectations and follow up with a written questionnaire for both the student and parent or guardian. Future meetings center around the student (although parents or guardians are always welcome!) so I can really get to know the student well and we can develop a relationship of trust and confidence.
We minimize your stress for students (and parents!) so they can focus on learning and building their application.
We help discover how students learn best and what academic environment meets their needs.
We create a testing schedule, review prep options. and educate students on which tests to take.
We guide you along from start to finish by organizing the application process, reviewing essays, creating college lists, and minimizing stress.
We offer advice and discuss ways to maximize both need-based and merit-based aid.
