Our team is staffed with highly respected and experienced individuals who take pride in satisfying every family’s unique needs. The owner and principal of our practice is a certified guidance and college admission counselor with four decades of experience in the public and private sectors. She is a past President of the New England Association, an active member of the National Association of College Admission Counseling and a Member of the Regional Council of The College Board.
We value the collaboration of our team to support our clients. By sharing knowledge and working with each other, as well as with other professionals in the field, we are able to give our families the most up-to-date information.
Students and their parents have differing needs, learning styles, and expectations. While all students need to be part of a standard college admission process, our work is customized for each student and their parents.
Our team members are detail-oriented, responsive, knowledgeable, and demonstrate the highest level of integrity.
The college process doesn't just involve making lists and filling out forms; it engages the student in a process analogous to a long-term research project. Parents are part of this process as well, and we help to assign roles and tasks to make this journey as efficient and stress-free as possible.
