Amy Chaterjee, College Counselor

Amy inadvertently began her college counseling training while working for her national sorority. After obtaining her undergraduate degree from Shepherd College (now Shepherd University, home of their “huggable, lovable mascot,” Zan the Ram), Amy traveled all over the country as a chapter consultant, visiting college campuses, sleeping in dorm rooms, and eating three meals a day in college dining halls. This experience, along with her master’s degree in secondary school counseling from Villanova, paved the way for her job as a counselor.

While working as a college counselor in a New York City public school, Amy began writing a college informational newsletter, Prep News, that was distributed to high school seniors in over 40 public schools. She has also worked as a college counselor coordinator for the Peter Jay Sharp Foundation and as a financial aid educator for CUNY at Home in College, where she developed and presented seminars for under-resourced students. A self-described soccer mom to her kids, Dylan and Mia, Amy’s car is consistently filled to the brim with shin guards, cleats, and enough granola bars to feed a small Midwestern liberal arts college.
