About me

After attending high school in Johannesburg, I did both undergraduate and postgraduate studies at Wits. I left South Africa in 1987, and now live in Northern California. Prior to moving to here, I had spent ten years serving as an admission officer for an Ivy League university on the East Coast, reading and evaluating applications from every corner of the globe. Now I have joined the group College Goals, where I work as an independent college admission consultant, counselling client families across the world on the American college application process.
