Allison Peters


Allison believes that everyone has a unique story to tell. To her, the process of finding that story and shaping it into an essay that jumps off of the page is exciting — and essential. It is this kind of individuality that informs her “one-size-does-NOT-fit-all” approach to helping students find both the right schools and the right essay topic.

Allison joined College Bound Consulting (CBC) as a consultant in 2017 after working as a writer, editor, and proofreader in a major financial firm's in-house marketing/advertising/PR department. She uses those skills in nearly everything she does, but especially in editing essays and in her philanthropic work in the community. When she left marketing to be a full-time actress, she learned to appreciate the nuance and language that goes into developing a character’s story on paper.

Allison earned her Bachelor of Music degree, cum laude, from Vanderbilt University with majors in voice and English, and a minor in French. In her work with CBC, she is an Associate Member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA) and has specific experience with students looking to pursue degrees in performance art (i.e., music, dance, theatre, etc.), as well as business and other graduate programs. These days, Allison’s four children have largely taken the place of being on stage, but she still sings at local churches in Hinsdale and performs in the Hinsdale Community Revue. She is a member of the Hinsdale Junior Woman’s Club (HJWC), the Hinsdale Historical Society, and the Garden Study Club of Hinsdale. She enjoys reading, writing, painting, listening to and singing music of all kinds, and international travel.
