My Background

I have been working in education with students for more than 20 years. I spent many years working in the admissions office at Brandeis University, where I was involved in virtually all aspects of the admissions process. As a senior member of the admissions committee, I was a key decision maker on applications, and I met and recruited students around the country and from major cities including Boston, Cleveland, Dallas, Houston, San Francisco, Atlanta, and Nashville. I also served as director of a one-thousand member national network of alumni recruiters and interviewers. Prior to joining College Coach, I continued my work with high school students and their families as director of admissions at a private day and boarding school in Massachusetts.
Julia was very helpful with making sure I scheduled my time well and helping me to find meaningful topics to write about and to edit them. It made the process much less stressful and frantic than I had anticipated.

Why I Joined College Coach

After 10 years working in college admissions, I realized that my true passion was helping students navigate through the complex application process. It can be an overwhelming prospect for students and families, and I wanted to be in a position where I could use my talents to make a difference in students’ lives, in a substantial way. I love being able to help students realize their strengths and talents. I firmly believe and am passionate about helping each student find his niche, and making sure he knows that there is a great college out there for him, no matter what. It’s a real joy to see a student not only get accepted to her “dream school,” but also to see the growth and development that she has experienced going through the process. For many of my students, I’ve worked with them since they were sophomores (or even freshmen), and that’s really been an amazing reward to see them “come into their own” as young adults. At College Coach, by sharing my expertise and knowledge I can help students make one of the most important decisions of their lives.
