Robert (Bob) Dannenhold, a Northwest resident since 1988, shaped an approach to college counseling by 20 years experience creating and directing a non-profit learning center in Southern California. The center was commended by the American Academy of Pediatrics for its highly individualized model for improving academic success by including the students themselves, parents, teachers and other professionals in the process of defining each student’s abilities, learning style and goals.

This same strategy has been applied to college counseling with tremendous success, making Bob a much sought-after speaker and mentor in the field. He is a member of National Association of College Admission Counseling (NACAC), Pacific Northwest Association of College Admission Counseling (PNACAC) and Higher Education Consultants Association (HECA), serving as HECA president from 2005-2007. He is also the recipient of the 2004 PNACAC Distinguished Service to Youth Award.

Robyn Campbell joined the Collegeology team in 2004. She comes from a varied professional background, working in college admissions and intercollegiate athletic marketing during her years as an undergraduate. After graduation Robyn turned her talents with both words and technology into a job developing on-line educational software.

Robyn enjoys helping students find their own voice in writing the college essays. By keeping students organized and excited about their futures, she also helps them tame the stress that can be involved with the application process. When not in the office you can often find Robyn cooking for friends and family, event planning and goofing off with her two sons.  Robyn is a member of NACAC, PNACAC,  International ACAC and HECA.  She served on the PNACAC Executive Board as Inter-Association Chair for 3 years and is a past-conference chair for HECA.

Annie Hayward joins Collegeology after a yearlong Fulbright grant teaching English in Malaysia. Prior to that, she contributed content to online education websites, tutored students in writing and executive functioning, and was a substitute teacher. Annie earned her undergraduate degree in history from Barnard College and her graduate degree in modern history from University of St. Andrews in Scotland. She enjoys helping students figure out what comes after high school and the best way to get there.  When she’s not working with college hopefuls, you can find her digging into a bowl of guacamole or researching the latest and greatest places to visit!  Annie is a member of PNACAC, International ACAC and HECA.  She also serves on the PNACAC Executive Board as Communications Chair.


Due to the individualized nature of our services, Collegeology limits the number of students (and families) it works with per graduating class.  However, if we are filled to capacity we can refer you to other consultants, some of whom share office space with us, while others offer specialty services or are located on the eastside. Even if we’re not full, if you would like to find someone closer to home, we can help with that too (We get it! We don’t like sitting in Seattle traffic either!).  Please feel free to email us!
