“Above and beyond” is a phrase often thrown around, but in Patti’s case, it’s a motto. As a Yale alumna, she served as an interviewer for prospective students, and while earning her MBA from The Wharton School, she helped students as an admission office application evaluator.

Patti values the process of learning and growing from experiences—which gives an “above-and-beyond” edge to her students and families navigating the college admissions process.
