Marie F. Cahalane

During my career as a school counselor and an educational leader, I advocated for a diverse population of students in both middle and high school settings in the greater Boston area. It was an honor to be entrusted with serving the educational and socio-emotional needs of my students.

Since leaving public education, I have found my passion working with families and college-bound high schoolers as an independent educational consultant. In this role, I tap into my twenty years of experience to assist clients in all facets of the college application process. My services include preparing the Common Application, coaching the college essay, and advising on financial aid. My goal is to help each client find the best college experience.

Affectionately dubbed ‘the College Whisperer’ by my students, I am skilled in motivating kids who become overwhelmed by the college application process. By dispelling fear and breaking down the steps, kids find applying to college accessible and even fun.
