Support for athletes

As a former member of the U.S. Junior World Figure Skating Team, I understand firsthand the demands of elite athletics. 

That is why many of my clients are student-athletes. I have worked with baseball players, basketball players, fencers, hockey players, skiers, soccer players, swimmers, tennis players, track athletes, rowers, volleyball players, and more. For clients who may be looking to play NCAA sports, I can provide more targeted support:

  • Craft athletic resume and cover letter geared towards coaches
  • Identify NCAA Division 1, 2, and 3, NAIA and Junior College options
  • Prepare for Official Visits
  • Assist negotiating scholarship offers


Canadian universities reliably offer a high quality education and stable learning environment. If your child wants to attend university in Canada as an international student, I can help ensure you are informed about your options and are leveraging the right strategies to optimize the application process.
