Associate College Counselor Heather Yush, M.S.

Since graduating with my master’s degree in psychology in 2006, I’ve dedicated my entire professional career exclusively to the field of higher education. I’ve spent the past 15+ years studying and thinking about two things: what colleges are looking for in students and what students are looking for in colleges. I enjoy every minute of getting to know my students and consider it an honor to serve as their guide on the best-fit college journey! My goal is to help your students discover their values and interests, share their story through the college application, and emerge as a more confident version of themselves.

I’ve worked professionally as a reporter, editor and communication strategist, as well as a student advocate in the nonprofit education and higher education spaces. My areas of expertise are writing, editing and storytelling, particularly focused on clarity, syntax, style, grammar and purpose. Having worked with high school students in pre-college programs, as well as university admissions, I have an acute understanding of how to support students in cultivating a competitive college application, specifically the essay.
