Debbie-photo-smDebbie Seresky, a graduate from The University of Rochester and an experi­enced educational consultant, has been working with Schoolsearch since 2005. She enjoys working with students and their families to help personalize the pro­cess of choosing and applying to independent schools and colleges, a process that can be either a time of discovery, self-affirmation, and growth, or a time of tremendous stress and insecurity. A parent of three children, Debbie understands firsthand the importance of looking at each child’s strengths and goals to assess which educational environments will be most beneficial.

Debbie treats each child as a true individual to determine a good fit for her cli­ents. She maintains and continues to develop the child’s self-esteem and confi­dence by breaking down the overwhelming private school and college process into manageable tasks, and by helping to reduce stress, manage deadlines, and make the whole process easier and more successful.

Debbie also is responsible for scheduling and administering all ISEE and SSAT tests. She is as flexible as possible in accommodating the students she tests.

Debbie successfully completed the IECA’s Summer Training Institute for educa­tional consultants, attended the UC Irvine Independent Educational Consultant Certificate Program, and participates in ongoing professional enrichment opportu­nities. She conducts school and college visits on a regular basis to stay current with the trends.

Debbie is the daughter of Midge Lipkin, who was an independent educational consultant for over 45 years. Midge was very well-known in her field and helped so many students through her years as a consultant. Debbie was very fortunate to have her mother as her mentor and business partner for the last 10 years. Her three grown children attended Bos­ton area independent schools and have all graduated from college.
