Having two high school students of my own, I know firsthand how life revolves around our children. We strive to do the best we can for them, starting with their education. Our children are our future, and as a parent I understand the questions and concerns we have once our children enter middle school. Questions ranging from which classes to take, which extracurricular activities to pursue as well as which college to attend.

  After developing an aptitude for counseling a small group of students, I realized that I wanted to learn more and so I earned my Certificate in College Counseling from UCLA.  Today I provide in-person consultation mostly in the South and East Bay of the greater San Francisco Bay Area. My passion to help students shows in my personalized approach to each student and the individualized planning that goes with it.  My goal is to help each student find their perfect fit college and create the most compelling application possible.


Now I specialize in college application assistance, academic planning, college searches and much, much more!


I live in Dublin, CA with my husband and kids. Before receiving my Certificate in College Admissions Counseling from UCLA, I earned a BS in Mathematics, and an AA in Accounting/Finance. I have over 15 years of experience as a small business owner. In addition to that I’ve worked in the Career Center and Counseling Department in a few of our local high schools and I volunteer as an essay reader/helper for the Matchlighters Scholarship Program. Volunteering at our local schools and as a troop leader for my daughter's Girl Scout troop keeps me busy.


Counseling is always provided in accordance with the ethical standards and practices set by the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC).
