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. Many of my clients are in the Boston area and I still go there frequently, while also working with families and students throughout the country and even internationally.

My professional associations include: Associate Member of IECA (Independent Educational Consultants Association), member of HECA (Higher Education Consultants Association), member of NACAC (National Association of College Admissions Counselors) and a volunteer alumnae interviewer for Yale’s ASC (Alumni Schools Committee). I serve on the Advisory Board of Maine Coast Semester in Wiscasset, ME.
