A Note from Tara:
My passion for working with high school students started while I was an education major at Spelman College. I knew from an early age that I wanted to work as an advocate to help young people establish goals and build legacies for themselves.
I have spent my entire career helping students discover their utmost potential for success. After working for the DeKalb County School District in Atlanta for over ten years, most recently as the Guidance Director for DeKalb Early College Academy, I realized how much I thoroughly enjoyed working with families throughout the college admissions process and sharing resources with them. The vast success rates of my students’ college acceptance and scholarship awards greater fueled my desire to reach more students in the community and share my invaluable insight with the masses.
I truly believe that there are talented and bright students across the nation that do not achieve their goal of being accepted into the best colleges or receiving the most financial assistance, because they were simply not given the best advice or resources during the college admissions process. I would love the chance to serve your family as a college consultant and help your student receive the greatest rewards of their educational experience.
