I am a former admissions officer at Tufts University and a former Assistant Director of Admissions/Director of Transfer Admissions at Southern Utah University. I graduated from the Harvard Graduate School of Education focusing my research and internship experience in college admissions. I was the only student selected to intern with a Harvard professor and Tufts Dean of Admission to learn more in depth the college admission’s process. Also, as a Harvard student, I was elected to be one of four members of the Harvard Executive Council and was elected to be the Senator for the entire Higher Education Program.

My true passion is helping prospective students achieve their dream of attending the college of their choice. I have helped more than a thousand students effectively navigate the admissions process and I take pride in their success. In addition to helping students throughout the United States, I have also had the privilege of working with hundreds of students from Korea and China.

I love to exercise and spend time in the great outdoors. More specifically, I love to hike and play golf in the summer and I love to snowshoe and snowboard in the winter. One of the main sources of exercise for me is chasing around and my two kids.
