"My goal is to make the college search process a little less scary and help students make the best decision for themselves. I remember what it was like to be a senior in high school and feeling terrified as I tried to plan for the next four years of my life. I love to work with prospective students to overcome their worries by guiding them through the admissions process and being there to answer questions every step of the way."

"I love the enthusiasm of college students. Just finishing up college myself, I realize that 18- to 22-year-olds have a wonderful 'I'm going to change the world' mentality that is so refreshing to witness. Young people do have the power to accomplish great things, and I am grateful that I can watch these students take charge."
