Find your place as a citizen of the world



an impulse, longing, or urge to wander or travel

My philosophy revolves around the notion that a student’s environment is their “extended classroom”, meaning that learning continues in the city, region, and country where they’re studying. 

While the U.S. has so many choices, studying internationally presents vast options for students ready to explore and experience something different than the traditional American 4-year college experience. Students who are adventurous, curious about different cultures, and want to be immersed in diversity will find that it opens up educational, career, and personal opportunities beyond what most students can even fathom in high school. Furthermore, it often costs a fraction of what a bachelor’s degree costs in the U.S. (Yes, really!)


Welcome to Wanderlust College Counseling! I have been a school counselor for nearly two decades in the San Francisco Bay Area and have worked with thousands of high school students to plan and dream about their futures. I’ve also immensely enjoyed independent counseling for the past five years, where I’ve supported students in understanding and completing applications, writing college essays, building comprehensive college lists, planning campus visits, and presenting their best selves. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in French Studies from Mills College and a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology with Emphasis in Educational Counseling from University of San Francisco.

Imagine studying architecture in Rome, business in London, Art History in Paris, Asian Studies in Tokyo, or Marine Biology in Australia— these are just a few possibilities for students to a create rich and exciting college experience. 

I can’t wait to help you learn more and navigate the application process!
