College Admissions ConsultantFormer admissions officer at
I came to College Coach after working as an admissions officer at MIT for many years. I started my career coordinating the transfer admissions process, and I continued working with transfer applicants – including community college students, non-traditional students, and U.S. military servicemembers – throughout my time there. I later became the admissions-office liaison to several departments at MIT, including athletics and ROTC, and I managed the portfolio review processes for art/architecture and music/theatre arts. My last role at MIT was leading all aspects of the undergraduate selection process, from the application review to committee evaluation.

I remember how overwhelmed I felt by the college process. When I became an admissions officer, I embraced the opportunity to try to demystify the process for other families. As an admissions officer, I loved traveling around the country, meeting with students and their families. As an educator at College Coach, I enjoy working closely with students, helping them explore their interests and identify their goals, and guiding them to colleges and universities where they will thrive.
I love exploring – from wandering around neighborhoods in new cities to hikes in the woods. I recently rediscovered the joy in digging my hands into some clay and making something. I’m also a big foodie (albeit not a great cook) and avid reader – send your book recommendations my way!
