Upon realizing my passion for helping students and families, I left a higher-paying job to start my career in financial aid. It was the best career move I ever made. I worked my way up from an entry-level counselor position to director of financial aid, and then started my own financial aid consulting business. Since then, I have consulted with a variety of colleges and universities. Along the way, I also spent years training other college financial aid administrators at colleges and universities throughout the United States, and I wrote a book about how to find the right college at the right price.
