ABOUT PAT
Your College Years
While working with students and families, I offer a personalized approach to the college admissions process. My objective is to put the student in the best position to succeed. Success means having options and understanding these options, not only choosing to attend college but in choosing which college they want to attend. I have worked with students and families for over a decade. During this time, I have helped students gain admission to colleges and universities that were the best fit, where they have been happy and thrived academically and socially.

My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science degree from Tulane University and a Graduate Certification in College Counseling, with distinction, from UCLA. In addition to educational consulting, my career highlights include owning and managing a computer consulting firm, serving as an adjunct faculty member, developing curriculum, creating training programs for small businesses and providing opportunities for college students to fulfill internship requirements.

There is no more profound rite of passage in contemporary society than college. For students, it marks the beginning of the world of untold and limitless possibilities that lay before them in adulthood. For parents it is the culmination of years of love, hard work, sacrifice, sleepless nights, hopes, and dreams.

"You have brains in your head.
  You have feet in your shoes.
  You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
  Your' re on your own. And you know what you know.
  And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go ..."
