Katie  helped me immensely throughout the application process  She was instrumental in demystifying and de-stressing the entire process, working with me to create a high-level strategy for the college search and application composition process as a whole, and then drawing from her thorough writing background to work effectively with me on structuring and writing my application to represent the best version of myself onto the page. She has an excellent sense for what colleges are looking for, and she is incredible at making sure her students’ accomplishments shine by helping them craft unique applications that stand out  for college readers. And of course, her track record speaks for itself. There is no alternative — she is the best.

Katie guided my daughter successfully through the entire college application process. Her thorough and organized understanding of admissions allowed me to go completely hands-off, from creating the college lists to receiving the final decisions. Katie also met with my daughter regularly on new essay deadlines and edits and provided me with constant progress updates and reassurance. She made this experience completely stress-free for me and helped my daughter into her dream schools!

Katie is an incredible college counselor, who connects with high school students like a close friend. She thoroughly explains and effectively streamlines the application process for all universities and programs—public, private, international, etc.—to allay all our concerns and let us focus on essays, school, and extracurriculars. With her expertise in creative writing and admissions, Katie also extracts the best stories and characteristics out of her students’ experiences while simultaneously permitting much independence, creative freedom, and free will. Working with Katie this past year definitely has been the most inspiring and enjoyable journey!
