About Kate

For more than three decades I was a college counselor in the highly selective Boston area independent school environment. After graduating from Beaver Country Day School (Chestnut Hill, MA) Summa Cum Laude, I was one of the first women enrolled at Yale University where I earned a B.A. in English.

I then received my Masters in Education at Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

At St. Ann’s School (Brooklyn NY) I taught middle and upper school English, while serving as Head of the English Department. before accepting a position as interim College Counselor for Girls and teacher of English at Milton Academy (Milton, MA). I was at Milton from 1979-1981 and 1987-1988.

In 1988 I became College Counselor at Noble and Greenough School in Dedham, Massachusetts where, for 23 years I helped hundreds of students and families to navigate the complexities of competitive college admissions. For two years I worked as an interim part-timeCollege Counselor at The Rivers School in Weston, and from November 2015-January 2016 I covered a maternity leave in College Counseling at Walnut Hill School for the Arts (Natick, MA).

My husband and I moved to Peterborough NH but maintain a base in metro Boston where many of my clients live. I work with families and students throughout the country and throughout the world.

My professional associations include membership in HECA (Higher Education Consultants Association) and in NACAC (National Association of College Admissions Counselors). I served for many years as an alumnae interviewer for Yale’s ASC (Alumni Schools Committee) and am completing a term of several years on the Advisory Board of the Chewonki Foundation’s Maine Coast Semester in Wiscasset, ME.
