My Approach

With more than 30 years of experience as a reading specialist, middle school director, director of admissions, and educational consultant, I am passionate about helping students find success through learning and exploration.

Grades and test scores do not adequately describe the unique qualities of each student. Rather, I believe that the secret to success is to help students discover their unique aptitudes and interests. My approach not only encourages students to identify these strengths and inspirations, but also engages them to harness this power to solve real problems.

The result? A true sense of fulfillment gained by "doing" - by creating solutions and contributing value to lives and to the community.

Affiliations & Accreditations

I am a member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association, National Association of College Admissions Counselors, and the Small Boarding Schools Association.
