Having served in different capacities in secondary and higher ed, I observed the college admission process from a variety of vantage points and recognized the unnecessary amount of anxiety it perpetuated in students and families.
Believing this process should, instead, evoke joy and purpose, I created a smarter, more thoughtful approach to college admission, one which instills genuine enthusiasm in students, because thinking on and working towards one's future should be inspiring.
To build that inspiration, I work with students to assess their personality, values, strengths, and interests and translate this information to best fits in majors and colleges. Further, I help them uncover what is uniquely interesting about them and teach them how to translate this onto college applications.
Dovetail College Consulting works exclusively with public school students and families to provide an individualized roadmap through college admission. I ensure every box is checked from start to finish while keeping your student at the center of this process. Students assume full responsibility over their work while I help them navigate each step of the way.
Marrying information to inspiration, students leave our time together with more than college acceptances or defined career paths. They gain a better understanding of who they are and who they can be, equipped and excited to launch themselves into the next chapter of their lives.
Students who benefit from this level of attention often include those with learning differences, mental health differences, and significant financial need as well as quiet students who haven't yet realized their potential.
I invite you to read through my website and get in touch.
