CONNECT TO YOUR STORY

Applying to college? Make an authentic connection . . .
 . . . with your story.


Welcome!
 

When it comes to writing essays for college applications, it's important to de-stress and
tap into your creativity. But how do you do that? I designed the 6-Step Guide to help you
connect to your story so you can write essays with impact. 


As a college counselor and writing coach, I offer guidance in all areas of the
college planning and application process. 


Individual appointments: online or in-person. Group sessions and workshops available. 

 

Project You

College and Career Workshops

 

Project You focuses on college and career readiness. Hands-on and interactive, the workshops

offer timely information and tools to assist students on their path forward. 

 

Who are you? What vision do you have for your future?

And what are the actions and steps that will take you there?

Workshop learning modules address key elements of college and career planning. 

To learn more about my services, please send an email. I look forward to connecting with you!
