How I got here:

I’ve always been curious about people and their stories.

I studied psychology in college and earned a graduate degree in education. I teach in both private and public schools. What makes me most excited, more than teaching any specific subject matter, is helping people know what makes them matter.

My goal is to help young adults take notice of who they are and where they want to go. I strive to help them find logical and concrete steps that they can take now.

I have worked with students who have been accepted to a wide variety of colleges and universities. Some of them include:

  • Wake Forest
  • Cornell University
  • Holy Cross
  • Williams College
  • Columbia Law School
  • Duke University
  • Northwestern University
  • Rutgers-School of Pharmacy
  • Georgetown University and Georgetown Law School
  • Johns Hopkins University
  • University of Michigan
  • Elon University
  • Penn State
  • Swarthmore College
  • Pitzer College
  • University of Dayton
  • Connecticut College
  • University of Pittsburgh
  • Seton Hall University
  • Fairfield University
  • Loyola University
  • Xavier University
  • Miami University
  • Drexel University
  • Rutgers University
  • Duke Law School
  • University of Michigan Law School
