Application Support

For 20 years, I have assisted individuals and families with the-- often overwhelming, but hugely influential-- college and graduate school application process.  I believe that the process can be a rich and meaningful rite of passage for students as they make sense of themselves and transition to their next chapter.  I offer a range of support services at reasonable rates.


I graduated from Harvard College and the University of California, Berkeley; love supporting student self-growth; served as a tutor, teacher, and mentor to high school students; conducted interviews for Harvard applicants; and won the UC Berkeley Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor award.  Over two decades I have worked directly with students to help develop hundreds of university applications, including motivational and tactical coaching on the hard and rewarding work of assessing one's values and goals and how to share them with an audience.  My 15+ years of experience managing projects and people means I have lots of tools and tricks up my sleeve to help coordinate and motivate to define goals, get organized, strengthen skills, and stay on track.

Free interactive workshops

To help people clarify goals during transition periods I'm offering free interactive workshops to community members, including for high school college preparation events and through the King County public library.  Please contact me if you'd like me to offer a free workshop to your school or community organization-- especially if it helps provide a service that your community may not have free and easy access to.
