About me

Industry Communications or Media
Occupation Consultant/writer
Introduction I am a communications consultant and writer (Karen Horton Communications and Ganesha Communications.) But here is what is really germane: it has been a few years since I tutored myself on the college admissions process. Now it's time to catch up on what has changed, what mistakes should never be made, how to remain calm, collected and connected with our teen throughout the next several years. It's only fair that you know about where I landed when I went through the process years ago. My first choice wait-listed me (eat your heart out, Smith.) I graduated from Duke, then years later received an MBA in marketing from the Stern School of Business, New York University. In my career, I have been a journalist (probably the most satisfying work), a public information officer, corporate communicator, PR agency account executive and now, small business owner. Our teen is a high school sophomore. There is much to learn as I develop the curriculum for Mom's College Cram Course.
