Gail has spent the last decade working with students on developing post secondary plans and navigating through the college application process. Through her experience as a High School Counselor and as an Admissions Reader for UCLA, she has been able to see the admissions process from both sides. She is passionate about working with students on creating a successful future!
After going through the college process alone as a teen, I set my eyes on becoming a Counselor; I want to ensure that students always have the help they need to be successful. I began my career as an elementary school Counselor, I spent many years working at a Youth Shelter for teens, and I have spent nearly 10 years as a Guidance Counselor at a top rated high school in the LA area. I love helping students create opportunities for themselves and using their education as a tool for success!
I find that building a strong foundation of trust and understanding is key to a relationship with a Counselor. I love getting to know a student’s background and experiences so that I can fully support their perspective. I am very accessible and look forward to guiding you through the college application while also being your biggest cheerleader!
Most of my free time is spent with my husband and 4 year old daughter. We enjoy spending time at the beach, traveling to mountain towns, and cooking together. I practice yoga, love paddleboarding, and can often be found watching golf.
