Let's Get to Work

The college search is different for everyone, because everyone is different.


Before College Pragmatics, I worked for 12 years as a school guidance counselor at Sharon High School – a highly ranked public high school in Massachusetts. I continue to teach in the graduate school at Bridgewater State University in the Counselor Education Department, where I mentor school counselors in training. I have over 25 years of experience in higher education, including work at the University of Minnesota and Castleton State University. I find it highly rewarding to help adolescents find the right school for them, and truly enjoy helping families navigate their way through the ever-changing landscape of college admissions.

What makes me different?

I am a licensed school counselor who has helped over 700 students navigate their own unique college application process. I work closely with both students and their parents/guardians using a family systems counseling approach to create a college application plan that works for all stakeholders. I want to hear and empower students while understanding the specific needs and concerns of the parents/guardians. Having worked as both a school counselor and a college admissions counselor, I have personally visited over 200 colleges and universities. Understanding colleges and college admissions is both a vocation and a hobby. I endeavor to match students with the institution that will become their home away from home – where they will thrive, and where they will ultimately graduate.
