Parenting Generation Z: From College Application to Graduation
The transition from high school to college to career can be confusing, tricky, exciting and stressful all at the same time!
As a parent, you want to give your child the best opportunities for success. I’ve spent 17 years in college admissions and career development. My aim is to share what I have learned along the way to demystify the process and let you know, things will be okay.
My mission is summed up in three points. Every student should strive to:
- Get a degree in 4 years
- Do multiple internships
- Dump the student loan debt
As a parent, you want to see your child fly free and flourish. Start today preparing your child to excel before, during and after college.
Over 17 years ago I started my career in college admissions at a small liberal arts college in upstate New York. During my career I have worked for five private colleges and one public institution across five states. I’ve read a lot of applications, visited tons of high schools up and down the east coast, done countless admissions interviews and talked to an insane number of families at college fairs.
For five years, I was the senior manager for a nonprofit diversity organization that provided internships and professional development to minority college students. In my time with the T. Howard Foundation, I oversaw the placement of over 400 interns and full-time hires with major companies such as ESPN, HBO, CBS, Verizon, Fox, Disney, Viacom Media Networks and various other companies. The number of resumes I’ve reviewed and internship interviews I’ve done is well into the thousands.
Today, I combine my years of experiences to help students get from college to career.
How I Help
Let’s be honest. There are a ton of private college counselors out there offering assistance on everything from SAT prep to scholarships searches to college essay writing. My experiences in college admissions and career development uniquely position me to provide families help from application to graduation.
I work with families to understand how to:
- Prioritize college affordability
- Graduate in four years
- Pick a major or design an academic program that leads to a job
- Complete multiple internships to maximize employability
- Avoid massive student loan and credit card debt
My job is to coach you through the process of creating an action plan to get in and out of college successfully.
