Katy Watts has a diverse and unique level of experience working with young adults. Equipped with a Master’s degree in School Counseling from Chapman University, she worked as a public school counselor in the Bay Area before she ventured overseas and began guiding international students seeking admissions to universities not only in the United States, but also in Australia, Europe, and Canada. She has a wealth of knowledge related to international schools and Study Abroad programs that she can share with students who are looking to explore global educational opportunities. 

Upon her return to the States, Katy became the Director of College Counseling at a private high school and successfully created the school’s counseling program from the ground-up and achieved a 100% college acceptance rate for the school’s first graduating class. Katy has worked with a diverse group of students, including first generation and under-represented populations. In addition, with experience as an external reader for a University of California admissions office, Katy brings a wealth of knowledge to her work with students. 

 Well versed in the admissions process at public, private and Ivy League colleges and universities, Katy also has experience working with recruited athletes and helps all of her students find the right social, academic and financial fit for college. Katy continues to stay current on admission trends by attending local, regional and national conferences and visiting colleges and universities around the country.
