About Us

Ellen Whalen graduated cum laude from Wellesley College with a B.A. in economics and Spanish.

For more than a decade, she worked for a number of Fortune 500 companies, including Xerox, Novartis and Brown-Forman, while excelling in sales and marketing.

After her daughters were born, she became a freelance writer and homeschooled for a number of years.

Through the experience, she found everyone learns differently and has unique interests that, if nurtured properly, help a student to blossom and shine.

Ellen was drawn to the admissions process as a teen and found that interest rekindled as an adult.

She has spent thousands of hours researching the field, helping many families successfully navigate the admissions process, with their students accepted into top colleges. She especially enjoys finding the best-priced colleges for each student, when finances are a concern.


She looks forward to working with you!
