Laura Dicas, College Counselor

Laura joined Collegewise as a seasoned admissions counselor, having spent the entirety of her 17-year career in education working as a high school counselor and in admissions at two small liberal arts colleges and a large public university. Along the way, she earned her master’s degree in Public Administration at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where she served as the Associate Director of Admissions before earning her stripes as a Collegewise counselor.

Laura is passionate about helping students find their perfect college fit and coaching families through the (often stressful) college admissions process, but don’t let her credentials and extensive experience in admissions intimidate you—she’s more likely to start her student meetings with a discussion of the latest episode of her favorite Netflix series than with a question about SAT scores. When Laura isn’t expertly guiding her students, you can find her baking, practicing yoga, and learning Italian.
