As an independent college counselor, I established Admissions Untangled, as a resource center for students seeking understanding, guidance, and support. My extensive background includes working in both undergraduate and graduate admissions offices, guiding students through the intricacies of college and graduate planning. What sets me apart is the wealth of experience and a personal connection to the challenges many students face as well as my commitment to providing a personalized approach that acknowledges and addresses individual needs.
As a testament to my dedication to the field, I am proud to be a member of NACAC and SACAC, as well as an associate member of IECA. These affiliations underscore my commitment to staying abreast of industry trends and best practices, ensuring that Admissions Untangled remains at the forefront of college counseling.
The college planning and admissions process can be overwhelming. Between the applications, transcripts, essays, financial aid paperwork and housing choices… How do you know where to even start? And that’s if your student already knows what college or university he or she wants to attend! Applying for college is an exciting time, but it can also be overwhelming for both students and their parents.
