Current Enrollment

We're currently enrolling for the Class of 2023 and 2024, and will happily take any undecided seniors who have not yet started their college search. There are many colleges with rolling admissions that would be glad to have you. I look forward to working with you. We'll review big and small schools, private and state-funded, religiously affiliated and single-gender colleges, and everything in between. What I want from you, Untangled Reader, is to reach out with any questions you have about college. Finding internships, college search, best schools for C students, anything you want to know, Admissions Untangled will get the information to you.

"If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world ablaze.(St. Catherine of Siena)"

I am a Tampa native with over 28 years of work experience in higher education and undergraduate and graduate admissions offices. As an independent college counselor, I have conducted many mock interviews and have extensive experience editing essays, seeking scholarships, and working with students in college and graduate planning. I am a member of the professional industry organizations, NACAC, SACAC and IECA. Recently, some of my students have gained admission to Santa Clara University, U Penn, Colorado School of Mines, Florida State, and a full scholarship to UNC Charlotte. Independent counselors offer 1:1 tailored guidance specific to your student’s needs.

In my spare time, I am an avid reader participating in two local book clubs and raising a 2 year old wild toy poodle, Rosie Roux. My new independent educational consulting business is Admissions Untangled. www.admissionsuntangled.com
