About Us

Meet Katie, your one-on-one college counselor

Katie Jane (pronounced jah-NAY) was born and raised in the U.S.’s most international city, Miami, the first of her family to be born in this country. Her lovable parents had no idea how to help her choose and get through college. But Katie’s determination and skill not only got her into college but she had so many scholarships, basically she was paid to attend school!


Katie was motivated and achieved, including graduating from high school in the top six percent of her class, already with 16 college credits, a member of National Honor Society, Student Government President, an athlete and other significant extracurriculars. 


Due to her academic excellence and her resourcefulness in seeking scholarships, Katie Jane was awarded:


  • Ford Salute to Education Scholarship

  • Florida Bright Futures Scholarship

  • FIU Invitational Scholars Program Scholarship

  • Coca-Cola Scholars Program Semi-finalist (2% of applicants)

  • The President’s Student Service Award from George Bush


and best of all, a full-ride scholarship to Florida International University (FIU).


During her college years, Katie searched out and used travel opportunities to travel the world:

  • International Exchange Student at University of Hull, England

  • Study Abroad- Twelve cities in China

  • Study Abroad-Paris, France


Now she is helping students find the global university experience right for them, including U.S. universities with worldwide study opportunities. 

Client Testimonials


Amanda, Parent


A special thank you for helping our seniors get through the college selection and application process, personally speaking you made my life less complicated!"

Lance, Parent

"Upon our first meeting, it was evident that Katie was the right person to trust with our child’s future plans. We hired her immediately.

Over the next couple of years we learned that the business of preparing, choosing and applying to colleges is not just impossible for parents, but that it requires a professional that can understand your child completely..."

Renée, Student

"Working with Katie has been a blessing I  will always be grateful for.
 She is one of the most dedicated and genuine people I know. She is by far the most qualified and passionate person to help guide any lucky student in their college search. It was my honor and pleasure to work with her."

Christina, Parent
