The Best Parts Are Yet To Come

Today is a sweet day to come back to the office after traveling to New Hampshire for my niece’s wedding. Her attention to detail– starting with her creative hashtag (#whitemountainlove), to a locally harvested meal with delicious options for all, and blankets and cozy socks available for guests–was noticeable at every turn of the ceremony and reception. She admittedly loved planning her wedding but what was truly impressive was when things didn’t go as planned, she smiled and rolled with it! After reciting her vows to her now husband, he was overcome with emotion and bear-hugged her and her veil fell to the ground! We all laughed of course, however, it was the bride’s grace, smile and poise that inspired this journal entry. Her team of best women put the veil back in record time. Even the best-laid college admissions plan will have an emotional, possibly sloppy, funny, disappointing, or unexpected moment. Like my beautiful niece, students need to embrace it all and enjoy the ride, because in the end, the best parts are yet to come.

Why the Name “The College Doula”?

I love the name too!

I happily give credit for The College Doula™ name to a dad. I worked closely with his daughters throughout their very different college journies, supporting this family as they navigated the college admissions process. 

After building close relationships with both girls and intimately understanding their unique needs and goals, their father told me that I had come into their lives when they needed it most, providing expert advice in real-time, emotional reassurance, advocacy, and delivering results & encouragement. He said, “Meg, you are the College Doula™!”

This name is a deep compliment that truly resonates with me. Not only will I ensure your success as an expert project and process manager, but I am your guide, believer, and advocate. By creating a personalized program just for your family, I provide the compassionate, professional support you need each step of the way, empowering you to feel calm and confident throughout the process.
