I have encountered and overcame many hardships while seeking a better future for my family and myself. Despite being the first in my immediate family to graduate from high school, I now hold two degrees in Social Work from California State University, Long Beach (CSULB). I also completed my Doctorate of Education in Educational Leadership at the University of Southern California (USC) School of Rossier. For the past decade, I have worked with students and families as they navigate the college admissions and financial aid process.

My education, professional, and entrepreneurship experiences have provided me with a special knack for helping students see their fullest potential and guiding them through the college admission process. These experiences have also aided me in understanding the importance of parent education and engagement in ensuring their children’s collegiate preparation and success.

Counseling Style:

“Success favors those who prepare for success, if one isn’t preparing for success then they will not be successful.” -Keyon

In today’s competitive admissions environment having perfect grades and test scores aren’t enough. Students must do everything in their power to be competitive and set themselves apart from other students, and that’s where I come in.
