Meet Nancy Ziselman

Founder of Best Fit Counseling

Nancy Ziselman is an experienced college counselor with a passion for helping students and families with every aspect of the college admission process.  For eight years, Nancy had the privilege of working in one of the most selective New York City High Schools where she advised more than two thousand students as a college and academic guidance counselor. In this comprehensive role, she analyzed admissions outcomes, including the factors that mattered most in helping students gain admission to their top choice schools.
