Maureen Gelberg, College Counselor

Maureen has spent her career in college admissions, working at a small private college and large research universities. She spent ten years as the associate director of admission at the University of Southern California. During her time at USC, Maureen supervised the review of applications from a select group of Los Angeles area schools and personally reviewed up to 1,800 applications a year from students in California, New England, and Michigan. Before joining USC, Maureen worked in the admissions offices of the University of Michigan and Dominican University of California and evaluated applications for UCLA.

Maureen is a member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) and the Western Association of College Admission Counseling (WACAC), where she served as the chairman of professional development. She currently teaches a course for the College Counseling Certificate Program at UCLA Extension.

Maureen is an accomplished decorator of cakes and enjoys crafting, yoga, Crossfit, and crossword puzzles. She knows all of the words to Steel Magnolias and was a precocious sorority president as a sophomore. With an array of personal and professional skills like these, it’s not surprising that Maureen is comfortable working with students from all over the globe.
