My Background

I started my career as an assistant director of admissions for Yale University. I was also a liaison for several sports teams (swimming and lacrosse) and coordinated on-campus orientation programs and housing placement. I spent most of my admissions career, however, as an independent college advisor. With over two decades of experience, I have successfully guided hundreds of students from both public and private high schools and varying backgrounds and interests/skills to all sizes and types of colleges and universities.

Amy was an outstanding coach for my daughter. I appreciated her directness, her setting of expectations... as well as her support and positivity... which is so helpful during these stressful times.

Why I joined

I truly love working with teens on the cusp of adulthood and independence. For me, finding the right, realistic ‘fit’ for a student is one of the most rewarding parts, as is helping the students articulate who they are and what is important to them in their application essay(s). Being introspective at such a young age is no easy task. So it’s exciting and fulfilling to guide the student to look within and figure out what makes them unique, and then to help them present this to the college admissions committee. Simply put, I enjoy working with the students, and I try to make the process more fun and interesting, and less stressful, confusing, and anxiety-provoking.
