I love college.

The process to get there? Well, that part could use some improvement...

I play the role of matchmaker between amazing young women and the lucky colleges that get to call them future students. 

I'm a goal-chasing, study-loving, beach-bumming, college nerd who is dedicated to transforming the application experience.

aloha, I'm Brooklyn -

Daily grind: To-do lists, americanos, dog walks, sunshine

weekend vibes: sleeping in & swimming after sea creatures!

Over the past decade, I've noticed a lot of brilliant young women who are holding themselves back. Their fear of rejection and expectation to be perfect leads to a lot of self-limiting behaviors:

- skipping out on applying to dream schools
- building a college list based on test scores and class ranking alone
- playing down their accomplishments

And all the while, I was looking at genuinely amazing young women that any college would be lucky to accept.

So I designed a college application process to give them the confidence they deserve.

Instead of seeking confidence through comparison, I encourage my students to find confidence in community.

It's a student-centric counseling approach that creates wildly successful students.... 

my college path:

University of San Diego Honors + one semester down under at Macquarie University in Australia

UCSD College Counseling Program

I believe in:

Southern hospitality, genuine connections, second drafts, and good mentors.

I'm not about:

Procrastination, people-pleasing, running for exercise, olives.

You can find me:

Flipping flap jacks, listening to podcasts, sipping on coffee, and brainstorming — often all at once.

What's your stand-out application strategy?

Find out how to turn your purpose and personality into admission-worthy college applications.

Every year, I have students accepted into the most competitive schools in the country and students who are awarded six-figure scholarships. 

But what gets me the most excited during acceptance time are my students who commit to colleges they would have never discovered on their own—universities that are an undeniably perfect fit.

The community that surrounds you, the way professors teach, the job and internship opportunities, and yes, your HAPPINESS, are all of greater importance than prestige.

I'm not your typical
college counselor.

And I firmly believe that the better your relationship with college, the more successful you will be upon graduation!
