After over 20 years of classroom teaching, I have found great satisfaction in helping students on an individual basis. I believe that all students have options and I enjoy guiding and supporting them on their journey to college. Seeing my students discover and get admitted to their best fit college is my greatest pleasure!
I live in the Concord/Walnut Creek area. My husband, Bill, and I have spent the last 20+ years raising five children a set of twins and a set of triplets--each with their own educational interests and needs. Our two eldest have graduated from undergraduate institutions and are on to graduate school, our son in a Ph.D. program and our daughter is a practicing veterinarian. Our three younger children have graduated their best fit colleges and are pursuing careers in teaching, criminal justice, and a DPT degree in physical therapy.
Education has always been my passion. I completed my Bachelor’s degree at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and received my Master’s degree in education from Cal Poly, Pomona. I hold teaching credentials in California and Texas. I also have a certificate from the UC Berkeley Extension College Admissions and Career Advising program. I am a member of WACAC (Western Association for College Admission Counseling) and HECA (Higher Education Consultants Association). I believe ethics, confidentiality, and professionalism are essential in working with clients. I adhere to the NACAC (National Association for College Admission Counseling) statement of good practices and principles www.nacacnet.org/advocacy--ethics/statement-of-principles-of-good-practice/.
