College planning today is a very different experience than what parents had as students or even than it was five years ago. The cost of attending has soared and competition has increased for many schools. With a myriad of options available, there is an increased importance of selecting a quality and meaningful education.
As a professional educational consultant, former college admissions reader and marketer and parent, I am intimately familiar with the college selection and application process. It has grown into a complex, complicated and competitive enterprise; however, I offer strategies to help families find their own direction.

My role at Crocker College Consulting is to:
- Provide insight and guidance to students and their families. I care about identifying schools that are a good match to the student and will guide the family to assure an effective college search with minimal stress and anxiety.
- Simplify the process into smaller, manageable steps.
- Assure the student’s “voice” is present every step with a focus on authenticity.
We are Partners together
While I present appropriate lists, recommendations and strategies to help families make the best decisions, it is critical that the family work together to help their student take responsibility and ownership of the decision making process. I believe that this is an exciting time of personal growth for students and want them to avoid much of the unnecessary pressure associated with the process
