Natalie Rodriguez-GarciaMrs. Garcia is an awesome counselor! She was definitely one of the main people that I turned to for guidance and support. Her help was always sincere and her approach was encouraging. They say that high school is an experience that one never forgets because of the friends you make and the experiences you live, but in all honesty, high school is an experience that I will never forget mainly because of the teachers and the staff. The positive impact that Mrs. Garcia had on me was to never give up and to always speak up. Mrs. Garcia is one of the few people from high school that I still keep in contact with, her input and guidance is still appreciated, even eight years after graduation.
Kelley StrongThank you for taking the time to help me fill out college applications. You have been such a supportive and wonderful counselor, and I can’t thank you enough.
Katy WattsMs. Watts is one of the most patient and nicest college counselors I’ve ever met. Her office was literally my second home back then. I was so glad that she was always there to listen to my concerns and complaints. While my parents were off having high expectations of me on the other side of the globe, she was here slowly guiding me and most importantly encouraging me throughout.

Sherryl GodfreyMy twins feel comfortable with reaching out to Ms. Godfrey for help due to the accessibility, attention and care she provides her students. Every time I have walked through the office I have seen children waiting outside counselor offices for help and advice.
José N. IretaMr. Ireta was always willing to entertain my crazy ideas and thought outside of the box to make things work for me. Because of him, I had the opportunity to do all that I wanted to do in high school. His willingness to go above and beyond really means the world to me. I couldn’t have asked for a better counselor. My academic advisor at USC has big shoes to fill!

Diane WilcoxDiane has been a tremendous benefit to our family for the college application process. Diane is someone my son respects. She has a way of gently telling him when something is not right or needs additional work. He will listen to her without fighting or arguing as he tends to do with us.
Stephanie SachsI couldn’t have applied for Quest Bridge, the CSS Profile, Financial aid, the Common App along the many other college applications without the help of Mrs. Sachs. I could come into her office all stressed out and I would leave with a sense of accomplishment. She just knew how to put me at ease.
Esperanza SolisBeing the oldest child in the family and having parents that did not attend college made me feel like I was on my own. I did not know much about the college process but Ms. Solis was very involved and helped me every step of the way. She went out of her way to guide me and she explains everything well. Speaking to her made me feel excited about college and my future.
David CamposI had no knowledge of the college app process. David educated me and my son Nathan about critical aspects regarding UC application, such as topics to focus in personal statement etc.

Richard NaporaI was lucky enough to have Mr. Napora as my counselor during the majority of my time at Newbury Park High School. Not only is he kind and courteous, but he is also extremely intelligent. I don’t think I ever had a question that he could not answer.
Spencer BarrFrom helping me figure out what I really wanted in a school, to what I was interested in, to which schools to apply to and even reading my essays and helping me fill out every application
Dr. Monica RandallHow many great things can I say about Dr. Randall before someone thinks that I’ve been paid to say them?!?! I worked with Dr. Randall for four years as her Executive Assistant, at a university in Baltimore. She was always fully aware and way out in front of any impending issues that could affect our ability to serve our students.
Dr. Nicole JacksonWe are really fortunate to have an expert from UCEazy as our advisor! Booking online for expert’s time was super easy, and UCEazy kept it unbelievably affordable! Our son was reviewing his admission across four different universities, and UCEazy expert spent time exploring my son’s interests (both inside class and out) and career plans.
