I am a test prep specialist, college admission counselor, and academic tutor. Having worked with several hundred students, and with experience at both large tutoring companies and boutique firms, I bring my expertise to meet the needs of each individual student.
At Bowdoin College, I earned a degree in Sociology and worked in the Admissions Department. I am currently completing graduate studies in Educational Consulting at the University of California, Irvine. I am a member of the Western Association for College Admission Counseling and the Bay Area Tutoring Summit, and I serve as a volunteer for the College Essay Guy's Matchlighters Scholars Program.
A graduate of Tamalpa Institute, I am a certified Somatic and Expressive Arts Educator, and I use this training to better resource students for the academic challenges they face. I have also been a test prep curriculum writer and tutor trainer.
Previously I was a development specialist, with awarded funds including a $110,000 grant from the New England Foundation for the Arts; the owner of a skills-training business for young adults with learning and developmental differences; and a case manager in a sober men's homeless shelter. Outside of work, I perform with a modern dance company and go hiking in the redwoods with my dog Layla.
