What is Education Maven?

Maven LogoMy passion is for working with students with a range of talents, interests and challenges, and their families to navigate the education systems and provide guidance through the college planning and application process with the ultimate goal of graduation

I earned a PhD and have worked for three decades in education and special education research and policy with a focus on the transition from youth to adult life. I work with students of varied backgrounds, and across the spectrum from those with neuro-developmental and learning challenges to students who are academically gifted.

From planning your high school curriculum, assessing your needs and strengths, identifying college matches, guiding the entire college application process with special attention to stellar essays that highlight your greatest assets, and exploring your career options, we will work together to make the college planning and application process for you as fun and as stress free as possible.
