Lisa’s passion for helping students and families navigate the often complicated and stressful path to college was developed throughout her 10 years of experience in public education. As an English teacher, college readiness coordinator, and high school assistant principal, her belief that all families deserve a personal, compassionate, and knowledgeable college counselor was strengthened. She became a trusted adviser, providing hundreds of families with a comfortable environment in which educational goals were broadened and students were motivated to achieve their highest academic and emotional potentials. Her personal and professional experience helping students find colleges that are the right fit inspired the founding of EDvantage Consulting.
Professionally, Lisa’s career in education began as a middle school tutor in study skills and writing, and after graduating from UC Santa Barbara with a B.A. in English, she returned to UCSB for a Master’s Degree in Education and English teaching credential. Her five years of specific English teaching experience at both the middle and high school levels honed her ability to teach students strategies for writing college admissions and scholarship essays. She went on to become the lead coordinator of a college readiness program for students in grades 6-12, planning and leading various college tours, assisting students with college applications and admissions essays, preparing students for the rigors of advanced high school courses, meeting with college admissions representatives, and developing relationships with directors of admissions at higher educational institutions throughout the country. She has presented workshops throughout the United States related to college admissions and helping all students feel successful studying rigorous curriculum.
Lisa is one of the few Orange County professional members of IECA, as well as a member of the National Association of College Admissions Counselors. She is also one of seven IECA members selected to be on IECA's College Committee. In 2010, Lisa was appointed a position by Roger Rossier to USC's School Counseling Advisory Board. She also supervises counseling interns from Chapman University's School Counseling program. Her dedication to providing the most comprehensive and up to date services for her clients compels her passion to continuously develop relationships with college admissions reps., high school counselors, and colleagues throughout the nation.
