A Seattle native, as well as a former expat in Singapore, I understand the broad set of services required by families relocating to the Seattle area. My goal is to make every family's move as easy and efficient as possible by providing tailored, thoroughly researched guidance on preschool through high school options.  I am an Associate Member of the independent Educational Consultants Association and have strong relationships with both public and independent schools in the Seattle area. I also provide insight on Seattle area neighborhoods, local services and northwest lifestyle that will enable your entire family to transition more quickly and successfully.

I have worked with families relocating to the Seattle area, either on their own or through a corporate-sponsored move.  Whether your family is coming from Dubai or Denver, Shanghai or San Francisco, I will make your move and adjustment to the area both easier and far less stressful. I personalize each relocation program based on each family members specific requirements. 

In addition to the services above, during the Fall independent school admission season I am available to advise Seattle area families on their independent school search. In a 90-minute face-to-face meeting, we will review application essays and talk about the do's and don'ts for both parents and student applicants, discuss how to get the most out of an Open House visit, and practice for family and student interviews.  I'll share best practices for asking for impactful references from teachers and community contacts, with time also available for Q&A.  We will conclude our meeting by discussing strategies for all follow-up communication to ensure you are submitting the strongest possible application for your child.  The cost for this 90-minute consultation is $200.
