Congratulations 2018 EA/ED College Acceptance!
Premier's team of professional educational consultants will work with you to provide personalized college admissions counseling and expert advice throughout the college search and application process. Depending on your needs, we can guide you through the entire process or provide assistance in only the areas that you require.
Heather, our Director of Consulting has personally served hundreds of students and families for nearly 20 years. Each year, she provides multiple high school planning and college admissions seminars to colleagues, teachers, students, and parents. She conducts multiple annual college visits and meets with admissions deans, students and faculty, with the intent to keep current about admissions approaches, academic programs and school culture to help Premier's clients make the most informed decisions possible.
Prior to joining Premier, Heather worked as an attorney, practicing in the area of Intellectual Property with the firm of Philips Nizer, and was also retained by the New York State Board of Law Examiners to grade the essay portion of the New York State Bar Exam. Beyond her extensive experience as an educational consultant, her background as a lawyer enhances her counseling, research, advocacy, and writing skills. Her educational and professional history, with the high-level of knowledge and experience she developed as a consultant, both defines and separates her from other consultants.
Heather is a member of the Board of Trustees for the North Shore Child and Family Guidance Center in Old Westbury. In addition, she has participated in extensive volunteer and pro-bono work for secondary schools. She was recognized for her charitable work and commitment to the greater community by the Town of North Hempstead and was awarded the honor, “Woman of the Year” in 2016. She has held numerous positions in the East Williston School District, including Co-President of the elementary school; member of the Coordinating Council; and member of parent interview committees for district administrative candidates, including two superintendents and multiple department chairs. She regularly donates educational consulting services to charitable organizations in the New York metropolitan area.

I just finished my freshman year at MIT, and I am majoring in architecture. I am also pursuing minors in Computer Science and Comparative Media Studies. I am thriving at MIT, and I would not be here without working with Susan at Premier. As a sophomore in high school, Susan encouraged me to push my limits in math competitions, and I eventually entered USAJMO. Before the summer of my junior year, Susan and Heather, my consultant, spent countless hours looking for the perfect summer school for me. Their effort definitely paid off, as the two programs I participated in were so memorable and influential. Most importantly, during the college application season, both Susan and Heather worked hard to refine my application, from subtle details to the general message. Susan and Heather have always been there for me, and now, I am here because of them.
