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 NACAC (National Association of College Admissions Counselors). I served for many years as an alumnae interviewer for Yale’s ASC (Alumni Schools Committee) and completed a term of several years on the Advisory Board of the Chewonki Foundation’s Maine Coast Semester in Wiscasset, ME.
