I have seen firsthand how college admissions has dramatically changed over the past 10+ years and sincerely empathize with parents & students over how daunting the process has become.


After 7 years as a research & product development chemist, I became an entrepreneur and built a successful sign & graphics business. After selling that business, I stayed home with my rotten kids for some years.  Later, I went on to a community career center where I assisted mid-level professionals with the job search process. 

At the same time, I started the college search process with my own kids and initially (like many of you) was overwhelmed by the amount of information and disinformation out there. I researched for years to unravel the complexities and eventually studied college admissions and attained my Independent Educational Consultant graduate certificate from UC Irvine.  I have volunteered at Streetsquash in Newark and worked as program director of college admissions for a tutoring company.


I am a member of IECA, HECA, NCAG, SACAC, NJACAC and assist students both in the Midwest, East Coast and Southeast. In addition to active participation in these professional organizations, I am committed to my professional development. Every year is a non-stop loop of campus visits, counselor tours, meeting with college reps, and attending regional & national conferences and educational seminars.  I am grateful for my vast network of colleagues.  When you hire CollegeSavvy Consultants, you have indirect access to these networks.


I consider empathy, analytical thinking, seeing the big picture and dot-connecting to be some of my greatest strengths. Truly, the years of endless study/research, working with students from all walks of life and witnessing the college aftermath has given me perfect hindsight. Every student & family is different and requires a different strategy.

I calm the waters, filter out the noise and empower students & families with practical and useful information.  I want you to get college savvy and go in with your eyes wide open! Whenever possible, I love to play tennis and once in a great while, fit in some golf!
