Associate Director of College Counseling Kenyon College, BA Suffolk University, M.Ed.
After graduating from Kenyon College in (very rural) Gambier, Ohio, Katie moved back to her native Boston to pursue her Masters in School Counseling at Suffolk University. While in graduate school, Katie also held a fellowship in the undergraduate admissions office at Suffolk, sparking a passion for access and equity in college admissions and applying social emotional counseling to a process mired with angst and uncertainty.
Upon completing her Masters, Katie moved to Washington, DC and served as an Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions at the George Washington University. After three years and reading nearly 5,000 applications, Katie was ready to work with high school students more directly and made the jump from the east to the west coast, serving as Co-Director of College Counseling at San Domenico School in San Anselmo for the last four years.
Outside of school, you can find Katie eating and hiking her way through the Bay Area and petting every dog she meets along the way. Junior families will have an opportunity to meet with Katie before the end of this school year.
We have such interesting and talented students and staffulty, and they are also wonderful human beings!
