At the Laurel School, an independent all-girls school in Shaker Heights, Ohio, Davida worked for six years as an independent consultant in the college guidance office advising students on college essays and supplemental questions. This experience sharpened her focus on the overall process and exposed her to seasoned mentors as well.
Currently, Davida works at SAR High School in two different roles. She is a member of their College Counseling Center where she works with students on list building, deadline applications, essay writing. Additionally she works as a Learning Specialist and helps SAR students with study skills, time management, and provides reading and writing support.
Davida is also an associate member of the Independent Educational Counselors Association which gives her a community of other independent counselors to support her work. Her list of current and former clients includes a diverse range of schools, backgrounds, and locations, working with students both face to face and virtually in many states.
After living in the Cleveland area for over 20 years, Davida has returned to the New York area. Her three children have successfully survived the college admissions process. Her daughter is an alumnus of Columbia University and has just completed her first year of medical school at Case Western Reserve University, her middle son is a fifth-year engineering student at Northeastern University. Her youngest son finished his freshman year at George Washington University with a major in exercise science.
