Ms Liane Crane


Before becoming passionate about college finances, Liane’s background included teaching, a non-profit director and paralegal for a large NYC law firm. After 10 years’ experience working for a college consulting company, she started her own business to solely focus on college finances. Her specialty is helping parents early on, truly understand the cost of college and how to pay for it, along with educating recently graduated students understand their debt and how best to repay it.

She is a member of HECA – Higher Education Consultants Association, a board member at NCAG – National College Advocacy Group and certified in College Finances and Financial Aid.  

Assisting her three children through the college journey has given her first-hand knowledge of what parents really want and need to know. As all three are in college at the same time, the craziness, complications and excitement that surrounds finding a college and paying for college, are well understood. She highly recommends yoga, a glass of wine and long walks during the search process!
