As an Independent Educational Consultant, I enjoy getting to know each high schooler I work with and supporting families in making important decisions. While I enjoy helping with every facet of the college application process, the best part of the
job is ensuring that each student presents their best self in their own unique voice and has fun doing it. Prior to founding Kanfer College Consulting, LLC in 2022, I attended the University of Florida and then Stetson University College of Law,
worked for four years as a litigator, and then served for twenty-five years as a judicial law clerk for several United States District Court magistrate judges. In 2017, when the time came for my oldest son to apply to college, I assisted with college
applications and essays and realized that the researching, writing, editing, organizational, and decision-making skills I developed as a lawyer were the same skills needed to guide students through the complex and dynamic college application
process. To hone these skills and to increase my “college knowledge,” I have volunteered assisting numerous students with college applications and essays and am currently enrolled in the University of California Irvine’s Independent Educational
Consulting certificate program. This program, comprised of seven courses and 150+ classroom hours, has introduced me to the skills, knowledge, and resources I need to successfully guide students and families through the college admissions process.
