Honest and thoughtful advising throughout the college admissions process

With demonstrable experience in the undergraduate admissions office and the college classroom, Katherine brings unique insight to advising that makes the process more transparent and less stressful.

“Katherine’s deep understanding of the admissions process and her attention to detail were critical in helping me craft compelling, yet authentic, essays and applications that stood out to admissions committees. She took the time to listen to my story, understand my goals and aspirations, and provide thoughtful feedback that helped me to better articulate my unique value. Her unwavering support and guidance gave me the confidence and resilience I needed to succeed in college and beyond.”

“As someone aspiring to attend a top-tier university, my son needed advice on whether to spend his Freshman year in a full-time ski academy. Katherine balanced meaningful insight and an understanding of my son’s goals to help him make the decision.  As a former admissions officer at Johns Hopkins University, she has intimate knowledge of the admissions process. Her attentive, thoughtful, and direct approach gives us the utmost confidence.  We look forward to working together throughout our son’s application process.”
