Karen Scott Goldberg

Independent College Counselor


After a long and successful career in technology sales, Karen decided upon a new and exciting second career—college admissions counseling.  When her children were in high school, the stress of the college process was contagious.  She felt there had to be a more structured and less emotional approach to gaining admittance to colleges.  She has worked with dozens of high school students as they tackled the application process.  Karen’s approach is unique in that she starts by asking the question, “Where do you see yourself after college?  What types of careers do you find interesting?”  These questions require a focus on what a college education provides — a solid foundation for the future.
