Nicole Frattaroli, College Counselor

When Nicole was 16, she left a particularly unhelpful meeting with her high school counselor and said to herself that one day she would be a counselor and she would be a MUCH better counselor than that guy. And unlike most of the other goals she set for herself in her adolescence (becoming a Broadway star, understanding AP calculus), this one stuck.

As a student tour guide at Tufts University, Nicole and her asthma (mostly) enjoyed walking backwards up the school’s massive hill as she played her small part in helping high school students think about what kind of college environment might be best for them. From there she went on to earn her Master’s in Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education with a concentration in School Social Work. Post-graduation, she continued on as a Teaching Fellow at Harvard, teaching graduate coursework focused on counseling adolescents while she simultaneously worked towards obtaining an additional license in school counseling. She also enjoyed spending her summers as the Program Director for the Creative Arts Summer Program through Tufts Children’s Theater.

For the last 12 years, Nicole has been living her dream as a counselor right outside of Boston where she has supported students in getting accepted to to their best fit college. She loves truly getting to know students and helping to take the stress out of the college application process.

When she’s not counseling, Nicole likes unwinding with some low-quality television (against her better judgement she will always be aware of and able to offer her opinion on the latest Bachelor/Bachelorette drama), and she enjoys all things theater and singing.
