About Zaragoza GuerraCollege Admissions Consultant

My Background

Prior to joining College Coach, I spent part of my career as director of admissions for the Boston Conservatory, where I oversaw overall recruitment and auditions for students interested in music, theater, and dance. I spent most of my admissions career, however, as an admissions officer for two institutes of technology. As an associate director of admissions at MIT, I directed overall recruitment and yield activities as well as international, transfer, and special student admissions. I also served as an assistant director of admissions for Caltech, where I handled specialized student recruitment and reviewed domestic and international student files.

Why I Joined Bright Horizons College Coach

Applying to college can feel overwhelming — there’s so much out of one’s control, and there’s so much to do, too. But the process can be tamed; it can be mapped. I joined College Coach because I felt it was a place where I could make the positive difference I had always hoped to make while working as an admissions officer. Helping families get a handle on the process so that it no longer feels unwieldy, but instead, very doable is so rewarding. I love shedding light on a very confusing process — helping families make choices based on facts rather than speculation.
