Visual Arts Coach, Entrepreneur and Artist
I am passionate about helping my clients find the best college for them. I coach students to think outside the common approach to coursework and extracurricular pursuits to accomplish amazing things before they apply to college. With my mentoring, students develop a portfolio and craft an application that expresses their artistic passions including essays that reflect their authentic voice. I guide students how create a college list that best meets the their goals.
Having read thousands of resumes as a College Recruiter for a national engineering firm, I discovered how important college fit is in determining a student's future employment and personal development. I stay current on college trends and data as well as visit college campuses on a regular basis. I am also a life long artist who enjoys portrait painting, drawing and photography.
Some of the arts schools and college arts programs to which my students have been accepted are UCLA, USC, RISD, Art Center, Ringling, MICA, LCAD, UCSD, UCSB, Washington University St. Louis, Tufts Dual BFA/BS, Wesleyan, Scripps College, Pepperdine, Southern Methodist University, Colorado College, University of Washington, University of San Diego, LMU, Santa Clara University, Baylor and Auburn to name a few.
My online courses provide students with the same expertise and guidance as my private counseling clients.
