Liz Albertelly, College Counselor

Liz first fell in love with the world of college admissions as a tour guide during her undergraduate years at Colby College in Waterville, ME. Not only was she a pro at walking backwards (in the snow and ice!), but she loved speaking with prospective students and their families about their college exploration process. After graduating from Colby, Liz worked briefly in human resources in the land of Boston finance, but quickly realized how much she missed working with high schoolers. She completed her Master’s in Counseling Psychology with a specialization in school counseling from Lesley University and worked as a counselor for nine years, counseling students around the Boston area before finding her way to Collegewise. During her time as a counselor, Liz has helped more than 400 students through the college admissions process. Liz has also volunteered for many years as an alumni admissions representative for Colby, interviewing prospective students and speaking at Boston-area college fairs. She also worked as an application reader for Northeastern University.

Liz’s strengths lie in her ability to connect with young people and to foster a warm, non-judgmental college counseling environment where students can engage in self-reflection and develop the tools to create and submit their strongest, most authentic college applications. When she’s not counseling, Liz is likely hanging with her toddler son, Max, watching all of the worst Bravo shows, or spending time down on the Cape in the summer.
