After attending college, I taught for 10 years in Massachusetts, where I gained first-hand knowledge of private colleges in New England. Back in California, I began working with AP students, who were floundering in their searches because busy school-based counselors simply did not have enough time to work with individuals. I found that I thoroughly enjoyed the intensive research and sleuthing needed to find the right fit for each student. After my counseling training at UCLA and internship under a mentor counselor, I decided that I had to work independently if I wanted to devote the time to each student that I felt was necessary. Today, I spend twenty hours on average over the year and a half I typically work with a student. I love my work because it helps students make a difficult choice. I offer time and experience and have no other loyalty than to the student and his/her family. I work for you.
