Endorsements for my work with students:


I absolutely love being a college counselor and educator!  Here are some recent endorsements I have received via LinkedIn for my work with students:

David Theobald
Nurse Executive

Kelly Linehan is a dynamic and creative college admissions counselor that I highly recommend. She mentored my daughter Emily with her college essay and application process during her senior year at Shenendehowa central school. We are happy to say that our daughter was accepted into all the colleges she applied to thus far and received scholarships for most of them. We were very pleased with Kelly’s positive can do attitude and her ability to successfully guide college bound students and parents during this stressful time. We have two other high school students that we look forward to having Kelly mentor in the near future. Thank you again Kelly! Dave & Susan

Jeff McNeil
IT Solutions Development – Federal

Any parent of high school aged students can benefit from working with Kelly. In just a few minutes of speaking with her she revealed multiple steps that students should be taking to enhance their chances for admission. She is incredibly sharp and insightful…a real pro.

Emily Modan
NYS licensed salesperson at Realty USA

I highly recommend Ms. Linehan for her detailed work as an admissions counselor. Kelly is extremely knowledgeable about the admission process and can help your family glide seamlessly through this sometimes complicated transition. Kelly’s positive attitude and attention to detail will make you grateful to have her in your court!

Deb Shea
Assistant Professor at The Sage Colleges (Formerly Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction at Niskayuna Central School District)

Kelly is a true professional who understands teaching, learning and students. Her investment in her daily work with students is exemplary. However, her expertise extends far beyond her teaching in a premier district in NYS. She is a highly insightful guide through the college admissions process and coaches students and families through the often complicated journey of college application.

Michael Jones
Teacher of World Languages for the Niskayuna Central School District

I have been working with Kelly for over 21 years at Niskayuna High School. We share a homeroom of several college bound seniors who have dozens of questions and at times have great confusion about the college admissions process. Kelly has a gift for giving students clear, direct and practical advice about how to make this daunting process much easier. The results she has had with her student clients are impressive. I’ve seen the expressions of joy from students that she has helped. I would highly recommend Kelly to any parents or students who need assistance in choosing, applying and being accepted to a college that would provide the most ideal educational experience for them.

Jessica Adams
Assistant Professor at Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, University of the Sciences

Profesora Linehan developed two Spanish for Health Careers courses at Albany College of Pharmacy that I elected to take as a PharmD student. The courses provided a strong foundation of Spanish vocabulary for communicating with patients in different medical settings and incorporated active learning and creative teaching strategies that kept all of us students interacting. The courses have been particularly useful to me as a clinical pharmacist working in a setting in which half of my patient population speaks Spanish! Kelly Linehan’s enthusiasm for teaching and for her students was evident in the effort that she put into developing the courses and the interest she showed in tailoring our learning to our future career plans.

Soha Salamah

International Program Advisor at The College at Brockport State University of New York

Kelly was one of my Spanish teachers when I was in high school. The fact that we still keep in touch about 10 years later speaks to how much she cares for her students. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for Spanish helped inspire me to pursue a Master’s in Spanish linguistics. She is a great educator, advisor and person!
