Meeting with a college counselor was something that we weren't initially sure about, but working with Michele has been invaluable. Michele offers a personal experience based on current research and authentic understanding of the college admissions process.  She was available, listened well, and appreciated the things that are unique about our son. We are so glad to have worked with her.


Michele has been a great sounding board, providing thoughtful advice. She is warm and intuitive and but also an objective and realistic professional. Michele provides AMAZING organizational assistance that is necessary when working with teenagers and parents who are overwhelmed with adding college planning to their calendars. Like most HS students our son is very busy, I’m absolutely positive that we would not have been able to navigate the college planning process without Michele’s assistance. We highly recommend working with Michele and can’t thank her enough!      

Our daughter was a sophomore when we first met with Michele, and although it may have seemed a bit early to start thinking about colleges, it was invaluable. She gave us materials to approach the process in an organized manner, and she started our daughter thinking about what she's interested in, where she might want to go, and what she sees as important in a college education. We highly recommend her!




Michele was a helpful and invaluable resource at a time when we needed guidance. Her knowledge and organization helped us navigate the details of the college admissions process in a strategic way.


Working with Michele has been invaluable. We started the process of college planning, knowing that our son would have some unique challenges to be navigated due to where his interests lie. From the first meeting, we knew that Michele would provide our son with much-needed assistance in narrowing down his school choices. She was able to discuss in depth the pros and cons of the schools on his list, as well as some other schools he hadn’t considered. Every meeting with Michele is productive and personalized; they are engaging, collaborative, and positive.    

Working with Michele really helped me start to organize my college search and made me aware of the different aspects that I will need to start thinking about .




 Being the first child in my family to be a high school senior, we had no idea what a process of choosing the right college is! Michele’s knowledge, advocacy, and organization were extremely helpful in creating a college search experience that was concise, while thoughtful and informative. With Michele’s help,

I was able to turn in all of my college applications early, and am so confident plan for the next four years! 


I started working with Michele at the beginning of my senior year. I didn't know what I was doing or where to start. She quickly had a plan for me. We met every week for two months, and I was able to apply early to ten schools. I'm happy to say that her help and knowledge guided me through a daunting process. I've heard back from eight of the ten schools and have been accepted to all of them. I can't say enough good things about working with Michele. She helped me so much, and I enjoyed our time together. 

Michele was invaluable in leading us through the college process.  With so many options available, she helped us to narrow down our list of possibilities based on what mattered most. During this process, she also navigated us through the maze of high school requirements and recommendations, deadlines, standardized tests, applications, essays, college campus visits, etc.  We are grateful for Michele’s guidance and after going on the journey, we’re glad we didn’t try to do it alone!
