Since heading up The British School of Beijing’s University Admissions program in 2010, I have become a college admissions junkie—researching admissions best practices, becoming educated in personal and career assessments, writing about the future of education and visiting colleges all over the world (my family will confirm that I drag them to visit colleges wherever we travel). More importantly, I have immersed myself in understanding each of my unique students and the future in which they will adopt and shape. I love helping students find several great schools in which they will excel based on their interests, skills, and family’s financial needs, and then engaging students in a process to create outstanding applications that lead to admission at their top choice schools.
In helping navigate the college selection and application process, I bring my management consulting experience and exposure to various career paths. For fifteen years, I helped companies and leaders navigate their way through change in a wide range of industries at A.T.Kearny, Deloitte Consulting and later with a small start up, Brightline Compliance (now part of NAVEX). I have also advised companies on developing an ethical organizational culture and New York City on attracting foreign business.
Outside of college admissions, I love hiking and rowing. Although my early rowing successes include two national championships and a bid at the 1988 Olympic Trials Finals, I count my most rewarding and often most grueling rows as those with my husband and family of rowers.
