I am an independent college adviser and the owner of The Right College For You in Davis, California. I am a member of HECA (Higher Education Consultants Association), WACAC (Western Association for College Admission Counseling) and CASFAA (California Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators). Before starting my college advising business and earning my certificate in College Admissions and Career Advising through the Certificate Program at UC Berkeley, I worked on K-12 fiscal and education policy issues for the Legislative Analyst's Office in Sacramento and was a Portfolio Manager for Barclays Global Investors in San Francisco. I graduated Phi Beta Kappa from UC Berkeley with a bachelor's degree in Economics and have two masters degrees - one from the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley and the other from Thunderbird, the American Graduate School of International Management. I live in Davis with my husband and my two daughters and teach the UC transferable Economics and Statistics classes at Sacramento City Community College. I also teach the College Admissions Course at UC Davis Extension to Saudi Arabian students who are looking to study in the U.S. and to high-achieving high school students in the UC Davis Pre-College summer program.
