Kathleen Bracken

Director of College Counseling; Assistant Director of Admission

I have served as Director of College Counseling at Doane Stuart since 2008 and have been with the school since 2005. This role is both great fun and a tremendous privilege. Doane Stuart’s favorable faculty to student ratio allows me to provide individual attention to each of our students, while establishing a rapport and relationship with their families. In addition to serving as the college counselor, I work with families applying for admission to Doane Stuart’s Middle and Upper Schools. I am a runner, a yogi, and dog-mom to Zelda, a rescue chihuahua mix (who occasionally visits school).
