Without your guidance, I would have never been able to write the way I did about myself. You really pushed me to think outside the box, and to find similarities in things that I never would have thought of by myself.

My husband and I are so grateful for all of Jamie's advice, positive energy, insight and knowledge. She guided our family through a time intensive process so we did not lose our minds. She was always there for us and readily available when I was stressed out. We are all so happy!

We truly could not have gone on this independent school journey without Jamie. Most importantly, she was a great sounding board for our 5th grader. We have recommended her already to a few people and our daughter's comment to them was, "Jamie is great because she kept encouraging me to be myself."

When we lost our Director of Admissions mid-season, Jamie saved my life! She helped me create a playbook, relying not only on her vast experience but right-sizing for us based upon our competitive landscape. Her insightful questions, deep knowledge base, and quick thinking allowed me to pick up the pieces and proceed with expertise and confidence. From strategic goal setting to the day to day logistics, her counsel has been essential.

Director of Institutional Advancement, The Pingry School, NJ
Working with Jamie brings back many happy memories of the wonderful advice we received back in 8th Grade vis-a-vis our two sons' high school choices and their decision to attend UHS. Both boys are thriving and we couldn't be happier as parents. After UHS our older son attended Washington University in St. Louis which turned out to be the perfect fit for him and he currently works as a Software Engineer at WhatsApp. Our younger son is a junior at Carleton College and is having an excellent experience academically and athletically. UHS prepared them well for college. Jamie served as a catalyst at the beginning of this growth for our boys and we are grateful for the insight and expertise she brought to the process.

Jamie was phenomenal. She guided us every step through the application process. She helped us curate and finalize our list of schools, toured our top schools and shared back notes with us, reviewed our essays and advised us when to check in with the admissions team. With her help, we got into our top choice schools for both our son and daughter.

Not only is Jamie an impressive administrator and innovative admission director, but she has a unique gift for getting to know families, assessing their needs, and making a match that is mutually beneficial to both parties.
Lila Lohr
Interim Head of School: Town School For Boys, Katherine Delmar Burke, and Marin Country Day School
Both my son and my daughter worked closely with Jamie throughout their high school placements. The Bay Area has many great schools and finding a good fit for a child can be extremely challenging and overwhelming. Jamie made this easy for our family. Not only did she assist with the research and the application process; she asked the right questions to find the perfect schools for my son and daughter. Jamie cared deeply about my children, was thorough, and followed through every step of the way. My son recently graduated from Dartmouth and my daughter is in her third year at Middlebury. Their life courses have been unique and looking back on their time with Jamie, I truly believe that her wisdom and guidance created a path for them to be successful. The role she played will have a lasting impact on their lives.

Jamie Moffett is unique in her admission and placement experience. She understands the preschool, elementary, and high school placement process. I have never worked with an admission specialist who knows this wide spectrum of ages. More importantly, Jamie understands the joys and worries of parents throughout these developmental stages. One cannot find a more devoted, experienced, innovative, and knowledgeable professional.

We absolutely loved working with Jamie throughout our daughter's high school search and application process. She is unbelievably knowledgeable with regard to the various Bay Area independent schools and was always there for us, no matter how big or small the question. Jamie really listened, got to know our family, and helped our daughter find the right fit. Her warmth, calm demeanor, and expert advice guided us through a potentially stressful process. We cannot recommend Jamie more highly!

Parent from Marin County
Both my son and daughter benefitted from Jamie’s expertise and guidance during their high school search. Jamie is thoughtful and thorough with broad knowledge of Bay Area school choices. In a process that can be fraught with challenges and disappointments, Jamie helped both my children understand how to assess fit based on their hopes as well as our family’s criteria. She was clear in her communications and expectations around each student’s responsibilities as well. An all-around pleasure to work with!

Parent from Marin County
Given the complexity of the times, Admissions Directors have been forced to think about our admissions programs in an entirely new way. Jamie's help in navigating the change in format of events and thinking creatively about ways to actively engage families with limited access to them in person has been invaluable.
Janie Rocket
Director of Admission, Marin Catholic High School, CA
I had the pleasure of working with Jamie when she hired our company, Circlescapes, to create an interactive campus tour for Marin Country Day School. Because of the pandemic, in-person tours weren't possible, so Jamie and her team innovated to combine the virtual tour with self guided weekend tours. Jamie has always been open and generous with industry advice and it is clear that she has vast expertise as well as a genuine passion for education, admissions, marketing and connecting with people!
