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 work with families relocating to the Seattle area, either on their own or through a corporate-sponsored move.  

In addition to the services above, during the independent school admission season I am available to advise Seattle area families on their independent school search. In a 90-minute meeting, we will 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. We will also review your student's grades reports and how it relates to the teacher evaluation form.  I'll share best practices for asking for references from 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 plus travel costs.
