Why I’m A Great Fit To Partner With Your Family

I’d love to help you get started immediately with some great resources — all free. Get my downloadable
grade-specific roadmap plus a “bare essentials” quickstart audio training from me to ease your
mind (and your budget) as you plan for college.

I founded Compass College Advisory because it felt good to do so. It’s truly my calling.

When we meet, you’ll discover my two passions:

1. Learning
2. Helping kids thrive into successful, happy adults

I’ve been in education long enough to know that it can fuel or fizzle a spirit that wants to go to college to create a successful career and life. Competition, application essays, tuition…can easily get overwhelming to a high school student and their family.

It’s painful to see students get overwhelmed and lose steam…or not take a stand for their skills and talents. With proper guidance, the whole process can be exciting and FUN! I want to help your teen to feel enthused and supported.

What drives my passions?

Practicality, dedication and insight.

I’m here to help you step-by-step with a plan that makes sense for your teen’s dreams. We’ll take that plan and I’ll support your teen to finding a college that feels like home, without overpaying.

You’ll get over two decades of experience in education by your side, committed to inspiring and partnering you.

About Dr. Pamela, Founder

College preparation comes at a difficult time of parenting teens. When they need your guidance the most, your child may want to assert their independence. 

Easing the tension between parent and teen in the college planning process is an integral step to achieving a positive experience for your family. As a college success coach, I become an intermediary with expert insight to find the right college for your child by providing clarity and a step-by-step roadmap.

Ideally, beginning college preparation starts no later than the 10th grade. Your teen’s college success starts by formulating a clearly defined path to higher education by uncovering their “why” for attending college, positioning their high school experiences, developing soft skills, and creating an activities resume. 

The college admissions journey is a time for your student who may feel out of place in high school to create a vision of their future self. 

Identifying the right college or university is a process. The best choice of a college may not be based on its prestige or a friend’s attendance at that school to be happy there and realize post-college career and life goals. Utilizing the support of an experienced college admission expert during the selection process can be crucial to helping your student find a college that feels like home. 

Compass College Advisory’s services have helped 95% of our students be accepted into their top-choice colleges.

Finding the funds to pay for college while not accumulating considerable student loan debt is a concern for many parents and students. As the founder of Compass College Advisory, I have saved families $27 million through scholarship awards.

Undoubtedly, our educational consultant services are impactful for families, but also employers! You can reduce stress and anxiety among your current employees by providing HR and Resource Group services. As a result, you can increase your employee’s productivity and well-being by eliminating the stress associated with getting their child into the right college.

As a speaker for parents at their workplace or school, I speak on many topics, including:

  • College readiness
  • How to make the most of high school
  • Partnering with parents at school and the workplace
  • Mindfulness for focus and productivity
  • Delegation and work-life balance for women leaders

Partnering with a top-rated college admissions coach is a small investment compared to the massive payoff in your teen’s future.
