Admissions and educational consulting philosophy:
My educational consulting work relies on two things, in particular—expertise and integrity. The following values guide my work with clients
- I will help you clarify your goals and work with you to create a plan to achieve them. Success has to be the primary goal of any enterprise
- I am strongly service-oriented and enjoy interactive relationships. I will be readily available by e-mail and phone and will meet personally feasible and appropriate.
- As we work together, maintain the highest ethical standards. I believe it is fully possible to "do well while doing good."
- Education at all levels is fundamentally an intellectual process. Our work together will reflect a commitment to supporting the "life of the mind."
- The •welfare of students is always a primary concern. Whether I am assisting a student in navigating the college process or working with an
educational institution, I am committed to the well-being of students
- At its best, work is fun. As we work together. my goal is for us to enjoy the process, enjoy our collaboration, and celebrate success together when
we complete the journey.
