Although we are in the 21st Century, numerous students do not

graduate from High School or matriculate into Higher Education.

Long before attaining a Master of Science degree in Guidance & Counseling, I assisted students prepare for standardized testing,

applying for colleges and financial aid, and becoming successful,

academically. I attempt to communicate with all students, honestly, without pre-judgment, pragmatically. This includes

the students entire family.

I have attained positive results over time because students and

families strongly appreciate being spoken to with honesty, without pre-judgment, pragmatically. Being able to converse

the importance of administration to the family is vitally appreciated.
