About Tonica

My experiences as a first-generation college student and high school teacher for seven years are what led me to my passion for helping students and their families in the college selection process. College is the second largest investment a typical family will make, right after a house, so the stress that comes with making the right decision is understandable! My job is to ease the anxiety and burden and make this process as enjoyable as possible for everyone involved through efficient and effective college planning services. 

 

From tackling the milestones along the way of standardized testing and analyzing financial aid packages to making the final college decision, my job is to guide both students and families on the path to success. I’m fueled by my commitment to excellence and go the extra mile to make sure clients are fully satisfied with my work.

I hold a Master's degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Dayton. As a professional Educational Consultant, I believe in maintaining a positive mindset, creating partnerships with a purpose, and always striving for significant outcomes. Contact me today for an initial consultation, and find out more about how I can create a custom college plan to fit your needs.

"The first thing I noticed about Tonica was her honesty and professionalism, in addition to her down-to-earth demeanor. She is experienced and knowledgeable in the education and college planning field which is crucial in guiding parents and students in unfamiliar territory. Although I had gone through the process once before, choosing a college and going through the admissions procedure is tough and different for every student."- Adam J., parent
