Our daughter loved working on her essay with Marcy because of her constructive and collaborative nature. Marcy also gave our daughter some great tips on how to enhance her application, consulted before interviews and she was always there to answer our many, many questions.
Marcy took the stress out of the process and truly put us at ease. In the end, our daughter was accepted to her first choice college.

After successful careers at Staples and Fidelity Investments, Marcy decided to pursue her passion – helping students find and gain acceptance to their best-fit colleges – and launched Collegiate Coach.
Marcy’s experience interviewing students for the University of Pennsylvania and serving as an essay coach at Brookline High School provided her a launchpad in assisting students in identifying and achieving their admissions dreams.

Marcy has visited over 40 colleges in the past few years.
As the mother of two daughters who were both accepted to their top choice colleges, Marcy knows how to mentor and work with students to accomplish the many time-consuming admissions tasks, to position themselves for success, and ultimately gain acceptance to their top choice schools. She is happy to start working with students at any time between their freshman year of high school to the summer before senior year. Her expertise includes (but is not limited to!) high school course selection, standardized test timing and strategies, college list development, essay coaching, mock interviewing, and application strategies.
