Please bring your questions for our presenter! Nancy Steenson is a graduate of Tufts University, a member of the New England Association for College Admission Counseling, and a member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association. Nancy is passionate about education, and has always advocated for strong academics in the public school system in order to prepare students for college. She believes that many students underestimate the college admissions process, and works with them to market themselves in their best light by sharing underutilized strategies that help them distinguish themselves amidst thousands of applicants. In addition to working one-on-one with students, she speaks extensively on the topic of college admissions in the corporate world as well as to parents and students, both locally and nationally.
