Hi, I'm Seleena!
I know how it feels to be lost in the college admissions process. When I think about how much I longed for mentorship, coaching, guidance, and accountability while I was beginning my college admissions process, I realize how powerful providing such opportunities for students can be. After all, this process culminates in one of the biggest financial and life choices a young person faces. It does not have to be a struggle or a random decision.
With over twenty years as an educator, college professor, and–now–an Associate Certified Life Coach, college planner, and educational consultant, I have been privileged to help hundreds of students successfully prepare and submit successful applications for college and graduate school. As a former professional stage performer, I specialize in working with artists and creatives–especially performing artists–preparing portfolios. With a decade of experience in international education, I thrive working with international students from Japan and China who are interested in studying in the US, Canada, Japan, and Europe.
Originally from the New York City area, I am proud to be a global citizen who bridges and moves among different cultures. I am proud to have inherited the wisdom of how to thrive and survive under even the most challenging of circumstances with aloha, which is at the heart of my practice. Although I am based in Honolulu and San Francisco, I work with families anywhere in the world.
