My name is Shellee Howard and I grew up in California. I was the first child to go to college on both sides of my family; I had no guidance but a lot of determination. I graduated from college in four years despite changing my major five times because I attended summer school and winter session. I made so many costly mistakes that I promised myself that my children would not make them too. Instead, they would have a bullet-proof plan.

Half way through 8th grade at a public school, my son informs me that he would like to be a brain surgeon. I felt the pressure immediately; I had no idea how to help him! I started with his soon to be high school counselor who told him, “Why would you want to go to school for that long and incur so much debt?” I realized at that moment, I was on my own. Feeling defeated, I put on my “mom” face and told him I would take care of it and just stay focused on getting good grades and finding his passion.

Fast forward to his senior year in high school. Not only did my son listen to everything that was advised, he worked his plan. He applied to twelve universities half being Ivy schools. Of those he was accepted into eleven of them and of those he received a free education at half of them. After his list of acceptances was announced, I had people calling me and asking for a plan and advice.

I have helped hundreds of families all over the world get into and graduate from the college of their dreams debt free. Desire is the key, if your student has it….. With planning and strategy, they will obtain it! Every student is unique and comes with gifts, talents and opportunities. Together, I help families create a plan that allows the student to stand out and shine among their competition. My proven strategy is successful with all students from Ivy League, to B average students. There is a perfect college waiting for your child and I will help you find it.
