Ann

College Advisor


With 35 years of college admissions and counseling experience, Ann is proud to have worked with many students of diverse interests and academic passions—everything from American History to Zoology. She has reviewed tens of thousands of applications in highly selective admissions environments, including for her alma mater, Cornell (both in Arts and Sciences and Engineering), as well as at the University of Rochester.

After ten years of providing individualized college counseling to students and families, Ann believes that finding the right fit for a student’s academic and personal interests means more than relying on the numbers. Ann truly enjoys getting to know her students and working with them to expand their horizons, whether that means exploring Computational Linguistics with someone who likes to code or public health programs with a student who is interested in medicine. She is especially pleased when students get excited about new ways to explore and express their intellectual vitality. In helping her students own their accomplishments, she is not only preparing them to stand out in the selective admissions landscape, she is also helping them hit the ground running once they get there.

In her personal time, Ann is an avid reader of mysteries and contemporary literature. She also founded and administers an 8,000-member historic needlework group, has diligently traced her family history back nearly 400 years (to date!), and only writes with fountain pens.
