I have coached high schoolers through essay brainstorming & writing and the college application process since 2013. With experience as a school librarian 25 years strong, I have helped teens formulate, research, and organize ideas, always recognizing the student’s story and voice are paramount. I have Master's Degrees in Art History (MA), Education (MS) and Library Science (MLS).  

As an avid reader and writer, I teach literature classes to teachers and have written grants and newspaper articles. I live in Weston, CT with my husband, three children and two dogs.

I work with high school juniors and seniors in Westchester and Fairfield Counties. I also work outside of these areas through remote sessions (FaceTime, Google Hangout, Skype) and GoogleDrive. Sessions can include brainstorming, guided writing, editing and proofreading. Additional edits and advice are provided through GoogleDocs, before and after sessions, in order to maximize our time together. We can meet at my house, your house, a public library, another location that works for you, or online.

All clients can expect to end up with applications that are structured and fine tuned for maximum impact, including well-written, topical essays that demonstrate their unique qualities, experiences and voices.

We work with students in the comfort of their homes, our office in Weston, or at a mutually convenient alternative location.
