ABOUT JOYEE


Warm Greetings!

Hello, OC students and parents! My name's Joyee. (Pronounced “Joey,” like the baby kangaroo). I'm a college admissions expert and personal guide for students in high school pushing hard to achieve their goals – and making the biggest choices of their lives to date.

As a college counselor, test-prep guru, and educational cheerleader, I don't just dole out sagely wisdom and send students home to study; I sit with them, open the book, and talk them through the task, whatever it is.

I'm the expert who's in your corner, just a quick call or text away.

Qualifications


If you're anything like me, you want to know what makes your counselor/coach the expert he says he is. Let me tell you about some of the great things I've done since graduating from Northwestern:

  • I visit, on average, 50 college campuses per year, nationally and internationally.
