Why I joined College Coach:
I have spent more than 20 years in different facets of higher education finance, from a college financial aid office to a large corporate banking environment, and find that I most enjoy working with families to help them achieve the dream of a college education. College Coach allows me to help families prepare to pay for a college education long before they are faced with making the ultimate college decision.

What I like best about working at College Coach:
I love working with families to help them identify the college finance strategies that best meet their needs as a family. To many families, the idea of saving for college and later wading through the financial aid process is overwhelming to the point of paralysis. We help families move forward and that is a very rewarding experience.

What I am passionate about:
I am passionate about giving families the right information they need to help achieve the dream of college. There is nothing quite like the feeling of knowing a family can send a son or daughter to college because of the help you have given them. Helping families better understand college savings and investment opportunities and later guiding them through the often daunting financial aid process is very rewarding.
