Margo Macready, College Counselor

Margo likes to say she started college at three months old. With parents who dedicated their careers to higher education, she spent her life growing up on college campuses. It’s no surprise that after graduating from the University of Redlands, she discovered her calling to help students navigate college admissions. For over seven years, she worked in admissions offices at her alma mater and at University of California San Diego.

She’s an expert in application review, having read close to 20,000 applications and managing a team of 30 evaluators while at UC San Diego. Margo has supported high school and transfer students across the United States and saw firsthand who thrives at a small, liberal arts university and who succeeds at a large, research institution. As someone who lives for a good pair of jeans (she considered getting married in them), Margo believes everyone can find a right-fit, whether it be college or pants.

When she’s not making the college process more relaxed for students, you can find her hanging at the beach, binge-watching Bravo shows and Seinfeld reruns, or reading historical fiction. She’s also a self-proclaimed food adventurer, who loves to hit new restaurants and is willing to try anything once. Crocodile pizza anyone?
