After a 25-year career in public high school guidance, I retired in 2018, hoping to continue to work in the field of helping students succeed without all the additional tasks and duties related to being part of a school district and a school-wide human services department. With a typical yearly caseload of 225 students across grades 9-12, my greatest frustration was not having enough time to dedicate to individual student meetings and follow-up discussions.
Today, as an educational consultant, I work with students individually, focusing on school success and career decisions serving students in grades 8-12 and young adult. My services focus on academic achievement, success in the classroom, career explorational and next steps after high school.
I work with students on the continuum of guidance related tasks: transitioning between grades, study skills applied to course expectations, planning and self-evaluating progress, exploring career paths, helping students create resumes, choosing college majors, college or post high school training searches, the college visit and application process, financial aid and scholarships, and I provide support to parents in supporting their student and navigating public education.
