Description of Experience : Prior to founding Spotlight College Advising I worded for 3.5 years at Partners For Achievement. The first year I worked exclusively in marketing and outreach, but as I became more experienced in the college admissions process I lead a variety of student workshops including professional prep/resume, standout factor and paying for college. I worked with students on interview prep, testing and ultimately was responsible for overseeing both the marketing/outreach and the essay program. I was fortunate to work with a number of counselors that provided me with ongoing support.
