Eva began her college admissions career in 1991. Since then, she has worked with thousands of college applicants in two admission offices (Harvard University and The College of Wooster) and three high schools (Detroit Country Day School, The Holton-Arms School, and St. John’s School-Houston). She has visited scores of colleges and was twice certified by the Harvard Admissions Institute. Eva is an active member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling and also the current president of the Michigan Association for College Admission Counseling.

Eva’s passion is working with high school students and their families as they navigate the college admission process. She enjoys matching the unique talents and characteristics of students with ideal colleges, while ensuring that each applicant is showcased to his or her best possible advantage in the college application process. She specializes in counseling athletes, visual artists, and performing artists, and is experienced in international university admission, including the UCAS system and the Canadian university system.

Born the same week that rookie coach Bo Schembechler upset Ohio State and that men walked on the moon, Eva has always been a fan of those who dream big. She thinks she has the best job on the planet supporting students as they discover opportunities and choose inspiring paths. When she isn’t working with students, Eva is usually throwing or kicking a ball with her son and their dog.
