I have nearly 25 years of experience in an array of educational settings. I was an Assistant Director of Admissions at Yale and at my alma mater, Fordham. Other educational experience includes teaching swimming to five-year-olds, art history to senior citizens, and social studies to New York City ninth graders. After Yale, I taught English in Guangzhou, China, as a Princeton in Asia Fellow. Following that, I was a fundraiser for Barnard College. I was a senior administrator at the nation’s premier educational access program, which placed gifted students of color at leading private schools.
I know American colleges inside and out and am excited to make the best match for students. In recent years, I have spoken at the Yale, the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and the City University of New York where I earned my masters degree in education.
I live in New York City and am a New York Times best-selling memoirist, a decent cook, an avid cyclist, and have a much-admired volleyball serve.
