Bio

I am a Certified Educational Planner (American Institute of Certified Educational Planners) based in Southern California. I have worked with students and families in one capacity or another for my entire career. Before becoming an Independent Educational Consultant, I served as a High School College Counselor in Temecula, CA. Working privately with students allows me to individualize the self-discovery process that goes along with college and career exploration. Every student comes to me with a different agenda and a unique set of goals. The opportunity to get to know a student over many one-one interactions allows me to make strategic recommendations about colleges or other pathways. I empower students to invest in the research process in order to make the best decision possible about where they want to go and what they want to do next. I support students and families from the discovery process and application completion to enrollment decisions and beyond. I am not here to do the work for your student but to provide accountability and encouragement as we work together to create the most comprehensive and authentic application package possible. I am currently a member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) and a professional member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association.
