After sitting down with Meegan and talking, my daughter developed a list of colleges to look at that fit her interests and personality. Many of these schools were not even on her radar, but ended up an excellent choice.
Meegan really listened to my daughter and honed in on her unique learning style and personality. I love the fact that she focused on finding colleges where my daughter would not only be academically challenged but also content and happy.

Collegewise helped me find the dream school I didn’t even know existed, and then gave me the tools to create my best application possible.
"Good listener” and “focused worker” describe Meegan. Meegan heard our desires and expanded our narrow search to find just the right fit for our son. She understands the complex college preparatory process and helped us navigate through uncharted waters.
The college application process is confusing and tedious, and Collegewise really helped with that process. It was reassuring to go over my application with my counselor so that we could make sure that I had a better chance of getting in!
I absolutely loved Collegewise! They were extremely helpful, and I felt really good about my application. I would have never known where or how to apply without Collegewise. They made the application process much easier to understand. It was a fantastic decision to go with Collegewise!

As a high school student, Meegan would fall asleep reading the Fiske Guide To Colleges for pleasure as she plotted her future. This led her to Colgate University where she earned a BA in English and then on to Washington University in St. Louis for a Master’s in Education. Meegan taught English at Whitfield School in St. Louis and could be found hanging out in the college counseling office as she gravitated toward her future career.
Meegan believes that the college discovery process should be a rewarding experience as students explore potential places where they will evolve and experience personal achievement. She sees her role as the navigator ensuring that no option is missed while making sure that her students are prepared for each potential twist and turn on the pathway that is college admission.
An advocate for equity and excellence in college admission, Meegan serves on the board of the Michigan Association for College Admission Counseling and is also an active member of both the Independent Educational Consultants Association and the Higher Education Consultants Association. When not working with her students, Meegan can often be found walking her two black labs and repairing the damage they inflict on her flower garden. Meegan still cooks, but unlike when she was a caterer, not on a deadline or for 150 people each day, although when her three adult children are home, she does feel a bit like a short order cook.
