Priya Singh: College Admissions Counselor

Hi, I am Priya.  I am very glad to be a part of the Counseling team at Insight and hope to be working with you soon.  

I came to the Bay Area 30 years ago, and still consider myself fortunate for choosing this location for my MBA. My journey towards becoming a college consultant started 7 years ago when I had to support my high-functioning son for his college apps. I also have a background in yoga and holistic health and have been working with adults and teens for over two decades. I feel that I can handle any situation in a very grounded manner, and always bring a calm presence to the consulting sessions.  

I also like to go out of my way to get to know the student, so I can research colleges that best fit the student’s personality, goals, and needs. Additionally, knowing that the essays provide the foundation of a strong application, I like to spend time brainstorming ideas for the personal statement and supplemental essays. I encourage students to keep enhancing each draft with suggested changes, and these subtle nuances help in transforming an essay from good to great. I enjoy working with young adults and feel very fortunate to be a part of securing their future.   

My background and education have been very varied with many degrees and certificates starting with an MA in English Literature, MBA, Health Coach, and College Consultant. On a personal note, I am an enthusiastic beginner golfer and an avid yogi. When I am not working with students, I enjoy long walks, love to binge-watch TV shows, and try out new restaurants.
