For years I worked in the world of formal education: I taught high school- and college-level English, crafted ESL curriculum for international publication, and wrote standardized exams for the school district. After watching my high-schoolers struggle with their college applications, I created curriculum to support them. From self-discovery and career-exploration to personal statement writing, I helped my students shape their personal narratives into killer college applications. Recognizing my passion and my students’ successes, I was moved into a college counselor role in 2013.
However, in 2015, my husband was relocated to Chile. While excited to live abroad, I was sad to leave my position with Denver Public Schools and my love of helping students achieve their academic and career goals behind. So, only a few months after leaving DPS, World Awaits Academic Consulting was born.
I founded World Awaits with two goals: to help students and families make informed decisions about their educational paths, and to help students grow and succeed, no matter where in the world they are located.
I am now back in the United States, helping students from around the globe apply to colleges and universities in North America. To date, I have helped 301 students attend the schools of their dreams. In fact, 100% of my clients have been admitted into their schools of choice. And I have loved every second of helping them achieve their goals.
