Co-Director of College Counseling858-453-3440 email@example.com
“I inspire greatness for a better world by providing a college counseling environment that encourages students to realize their own greatness, to embrace their unique selves, and to learn how to use their experience to make a positive impact in college and beyond. For most students, choosing a college can be overwhelming. I help ease the anxiety by helping students and parents navigate the admission process and empowering students to find a college that is the best fit for their educational and personal journey.”
