Speaker Bio
Since 2009, I have been advising students on defining success for themselves and then planning its attainment. In most cases, this means I’m guiding ambitious high schoolers through the challenge of applying to college. My unique background in standardized test preparation, college and life counseling, and writing and editing gives me the ideal skill set to guide students to competitive colleges and success beyond. My professional memberships include NACAC (National Association for College Admission Counseling), IECA (Independent Educational Consultants Association), and MACAC (Minnesota Association for College Admission Counseling), where I serve on the Admissions Practices and Inclusion, Access, and Success committees.

I look on my work as much more than utilitarian admissions advice. Education is a piece of life, and guiding students on self-awareness, critical thinking skills, and the development of a value system is really my goal. Serving as a mentor in these areas is both exciting and an honor.
