1-1 Consulting to help you navigate the college process

Imagine watching your child open a stack of college admission decision envelopes and each one contains a letter that says “Accepted.”

Your heart bursts with pride knowing that all their hard work has paid off. You start dreaming about your child’s future after college: traveling to exotic locations, having the means to pay for whatever they want, and making a big impact on the world.

You’ve been thinking about it since the day they were born: “Which college will my child go to?

A small liberal arts school?                            A large public school?                              An ivy league?”

And, you’ve been planning for college for years. You’ve likely looked up ways to pay for college, enrolled your child in after school programs, and chauffeured them to and from activities — all while knowing that these endless sacrifices will give them the best future possible.

As a college admissions and career expert, I help your child:

  • stand out from the crowd

  • increase their chances of getting into their dream school.
