About

 

I earned my BA from Beloit College, my MA from University of Colorado Boulder, and my PhD in Higher Education Leadership from the University of Northern Colorado. Having worked for 15 years within small college and large university settings, for national student service organizations, and with private clients, I have developed a wide range of experience supporting students at many academic levels from diverse backgrounds and fields of study. Because of my know-how, I have a broad familiarity of undergraduate and graduate programs across the United States and globally. I have advised undergraduate students with varied academic interests, to plan their degree timelines, and to consider a broad range of graduate programs. I have counseled graduate students challenged in their degree progress, and to consider career options best for their skills and interests.

Through my experience as a professional adviser and in completing my own graduate degrees, I know how to plan for the graduate school application process, consider the right type of graduate programs for personal abilities and goals, navigate complex university systems and services, and weigh the tough decisions it takes to complete a graduate degree. I have had support for my education from many places and people over the years, as well as figuring a lot out on my own through trial and error. Now, I aim to consolidate what I have learned, and provide personalized advising support to those who seek me as a resource.

With GradSchoolAdviser, I offer personalized advice and support to start, navigate through, and complete your graduate school journey. Regardless of the type of degree you seek, I have assisted the pursuit of all types of graduate education and career goals. Whether you are 20 or 45 years of age, location bound or looking to move anywhere, an average-grades or straight-A student, the personal advising I offer can help navigate the complex processes of pursuing and completing your graduate education.

Let’s see if we are a right fit to work together. Contact me today at gradschooladviser@gmail.com to take the next step to fulfilling your educational goals.
