IEC PROFILE: Nancy Steenson

Ready to learn the history, philosophy, and practice of an experienced independent educational consultant?

Meet Nancy Steenson, a graduate of Tufts University, owner of Steenson College Coaching, and member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association and the New England Association for College Admission Counseling. Nancy visits dozens of colleges per year, and founded, chairs and moderates a group of 40 independent counselors who meet weekly to share best practices. She believes that many students underestimate the college admissions process and helps to market them in their best light by sharing underutilized strategies in order to distinguish them amidst thousands of applicants.

Nancy enjoys working with young people enormously and takes great pride in helping them realize their full potential in the college application process. With her guidance, students have great success in finding and applying to colleges that are a wonderful academic, social and financial fit, and have been accepted to many varied institutions across the country. 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.
