College Admissions Counselor
I am an enthusiastic and dedicated college consultant that will be by your side every step of the way. I see myself as a dream facilitator and my greatest joy is seeing a student achieve their hopes and dreams. Throughout the entire process, I am there for the student and family to offer encouragement, motivation, keep you on track, and answer all questions, whether critical or small.
