Meet the College Counseling Team

Hero Image

I remember when I started out in college admissions in the early 2000s, my mom said to me, “People actually pay you to do that? When I went to college you just picked one and showed up!” Her point was fair. The landscape of college admissions is ever changing, but have no fear because my team and I are here to help! 

Our success isn’t measured by outcomes. We believe that when students are reflective, open, and honest in this process, the outcomes will follow. Our team will give students lots of ways to dig deep and reflect on who they are, and who they aspire to be. We will also provide students with tools to help you discern what things you might be wired to do. Simply put, our office is always focused on the most important people in the process - our students! 

While we know that many students and parents feel anxiety around the college admission and selection process, we don’t believe that anxiety should be the driving emotion. This process should and can be one that is really fun and exciting, and my team and I will do all that we can to make that possible! 

Pace Academy is known as an amazing community, and we are fortunate to serve such wonderful students and families. I hope that you’ll take a few minutes to get to know our team, and know that we are always here to help.  

Yours in service,
