Vivian Masket

I am passionate about equity in education and believe that every family deserves access to the critical information that drives the college application, financial aid, and college admissions processes. I seek to increase transparency for my students and their families, empowering them to make informed choices. My ultimate goal is to support each student in pursuing their own unique interests, passions, and goals, and in finding colleges that will best support those pursuits.

I hold a Certificate in College Counseling with Distinction from UCLA, a Master’s Degree in Education from Stanford University, and a Bachelor’s Degree from Georgetown University. I bring two decades of experience in diverse, urban public schools and districts to my work, including as a high school teacher, instructional coach, and curriculum coordinator. A lifelong learner, I make time to engage regularly in professional learning and to visit colleges in order to stay current.

In addition to my paid work experience, I have logged countless volunteer hours over the years. I have served in various elected and volunteer positions at my children’s elementary and 6-12 public schools. I have also volunteered with the International Rescue Committee as a family mentor to newly-arrived refugee families from Cameroon and Afghanistan, and at College Track Denver, supporting first-generation, low-income students with college access.
