Mrs. Krista Peterson

College Counselor

Starting in college, Krista worked as an admissions staff member and head tour guide while interning in the admissions office of a top boarding school. This led to a more than 30-year career in a series of roles in school admission offices and as a college counselor. As a result, she has a deep and inside knowledge of the art and science of school and college admission. In addition, Krista’s work has been bookended with independent educational consulting work, helping students and their families navigate the admission process for secondary school and college, which she will continue doing in conjunction with her work at HMA in both the admission and college counseling offices.

All three of her adult sons attended boarding schools and are now college graduates. Two of them work together at a boarding school in Florida, continuing the family legacy.

Because I love getting to know people and learning their stories, my entire career has been connected to the admission process in schools and colleges.
