I have enjoyed helping students find their dream schools since 2006. I have an MBA in Marketing and graduate work in Counseling Psychology. My resume includes speech writing for a US Congressman. In addition to college counseling, I have taught writing at De Anza College. In addition, I have given seminars for many community groups, including the Monta Vista High School Career Center and Boy Scouts of America. Before relocating to Colorado in 2015, I was a Block Leader for the City of Cupertino, where I lived for over 20 years at the same address.My own children graduated from Monta Vista High school, and I understand the special challenges in attending high school in the revved up Bay Area. I have coached hundreds of students with college essays and applications.

  • I have personally visited numerous colleges and universities nationwide
  • I have researched college and university admission requirements, curriculum for common majors, and campus life; I developed an easily accessible data base of this information.
  • I have references from many past students now enrolled in Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, Cornell, Williams, Duke, Northwestern, Tufts, UC Berkeley, and UCLA, among many others.
  • I perform all services personally on a one-to-one basis. I do not employ readers or 'help'.
