College Application Advising & Early Career Advising


Welcome! I specialize in college and career preparation for people 15-30 years of age.

  • College application advising: undergraduate as well as graduate school applications (map of college acceptances)
  • Career advising: the path from college to career, and early career

Drawing from +1,000 advising appointments for 9th graders to college graduates, I work one-on-one to promote the success of each individual. We work together in person, over the phone, and by video chat utilizing shared online documents.

Since 2008, along with college acceptance letters, my college application clients have collectively been offered over +$1,200,000 in academic scholarships. For my clients applying for college admission in autumn of 2016, 30% received full scholarship offers.

My college prep clients attend Huron High School, Pioneer High School, Skyline High School, Community High School, Greenhills School, Chelsea High School, Dexter High School, Saline High School, Eastern Michigan University, and the University of Michigan. Clients also live near Chicago, San Francisco, Raleigh, Detroit, and Grand Rapids.

My career prep clients are navigating transitions: from college to work, from first job to next opportunity, and a few are mid-career. Clients connect with me from as close as Ann Arbor and as far away as London.

Warm regards,
