I believe that higher education will expand knowledge, push boundaries, engage curiosity, and broaden one’s frame of reference, eventually leading to more choices and a richer life. It is truly a joy to assist students throughout this transitional phase of life and observe the self-awareness and self-confidence that develops throughout this journey.

I hold a graduate-level Certificate of College Counseling from UCLA and a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Kansas. I started Lewy College Consulting (LCC) in 2012 and have helped many hundreds of students find colleges and universities where they are happy and thriving. Before starting LCC, I took time off to raise my own two children and coached competitive gymnastics, working closely with teen athletes who aspired to college level competition.

I am a member of the Pacific Northwest Association of College Admissions Counselors (PNACAC) and the Higher Education Consultants Association (HECA). To stay current in the field of college admissions, I attend regional and national conferences, keep up with current blogs, list-serves, and newsletters, and visit dozens of college campus across the country each year. I offer pro-bono services to those who are in need, and I believe that college consulting should complement and not replace school-based support services.
