​I meet virtually with students, so there is no traveling. And yes, students, you may wear your pajamas to our meetings if you wish to - I won't tell. :)  I absolutely love my job and my relationships with students across the nation, and I don't plan on retiring anytime soon!

Each student is an individual; thus, I offer individual services that we can tailor to the student's needs or goals at any time. I'm a one stop, ala carte destination. I don't charge for what you don't need; thus, I do not offer packages. My ultimate goal is for my students to feel stress-free, confident, and excited as they prepare themselves for college or career. 

I do offer incentives for registering for more than one service at a time and for referring new clients to me. Feel free to share my website to take advantage of future credited time.

A little personal info: My two sons grew up in Tarheel Country and graduated from Chapel Hill High School. Ryan and his wife live here in Chapel Hill with my adorable granddaughter. Evan is in LA chasing his dreams as a songwriter and voiceover actor. When I'm not happily meeting with students and families, I love pickleball, Zumba, reading, writing, cooking, and any kind of games and puzzles. 

I look forward to working with you!
