Sophie is a consummate educator that has helped hundreds of students successfully navigate the selective college admissions process. After beginning her career teaching history, she went on to earn a Master’s Degree in Applied Psychology from NYU, and graduate certificate in college advising from Teachers College, Columbia University.
Understanding all the complexity of the admissions process and the stresses it can cause, Sophie mentors students with both empathy and a sense of ambition. She believes in a strategic approach that is supportive, but also pushes students to think and perform beyond their comfort zone. After working as a school counselor in New York and Philadelphia, Sophie enjoys the depth of attention she can provide students and their families as a PCC counselor.

She continually travels to colleges—domestically and internationally—to speak with admissions officers and “feel the vibe” on campus.
