Michele McNamee
Founder, Co-Owner,
Independent Education Consultant

Anne Zucchi
Independent Education Consultant

Friends for many years, both Michele and Anne talked frequently about their mutual interest in the college application process.  Michele founded Pinpoint College Planning as a way to meet the needs of local Bellingham students and families. Now, having both earned their Certificates in College Counseling through UCLA, Michele and Anne look forward to serving the needs of families both near and far. We are currently meeting with students in Bellingham, WA where Michele resides, and Madison WI where Anne is living.  Additionally, Anne can often be found returning to Bellingham and living on her boat, which offers Michele and Anne the opportunity to meet, strategize and share their goals for the counseling of current students.
