Best Part of the Job
“I enjoy getting to know the families and students that we work with. Each student has such unique giftings and passions that make it so much fun to help them discover the perfect place to spend their college years.”
Biggest Challenge Students Face
“I think there are so many voices in a student’s life (sometimes too many) – whether it be social media, their teachers, their peers, the news, their family. Being a teenager is already so confusing, so having to distinguish these voices on what is true and right can be hard at times. This same problem can come up in the college process and that’s why we want to help you clearly walk through the college process and alleviate the stress.”
Advice to Students and Parents
“In the process of college searching, I believe the most important thing you can do is to be flexible and consistent. There are so many incredible schools, and the right fit is out there for each student, but it may not be the first school that is on your mind. We want to encourage you to take the time, use the resources we provide, and put in the time to find the perfect fit that is right for you. Each student comes with such unique abilities, characteristics, and desires; and it takes a consistent search and flexibility to find their college.”
