You may have noticed that I have not been posting very much lately. I apologize for being missing in action. I can finally announce why I have been away so much: I’m moving.
Since attending the NACAC Conference in late September, I have known it was a possibility. However, it became a reality in late October. My husband has accepted a new job and we will be moving to Austin, Texas.
One of the biggest questions people have asked me about this move is what it means for JLV College Counseling? The simple answer is that I am not sure. I absolutely love helping students and parents with the college admissions process. It really is my passion. But, I don’t think the educational consultant path is for me. My passion really lies with working with low-income and/or first generation students and these are not the students who typically work with educational consultants. Therefore, I may look into working with a community-based organization or a non-profit that works with this population. But again, I’m not sure.
I WILL continue with my scholarship lists. I have loved hearing from students and parents that they learned of scholarships they won on my website! Plus, I know that many students have come to use my website as a major resource for scholarships. I love this and I will continue!
I WILL get back on track and start writing more. I love providing free advice about college admissions. I do it all the time and want to keep doing so. However, getting back into the grove of writing probably won’t start until the start of the new year when we settle in Texas. We’re currently preparing for the move, including selling our home, finding a new place in Texas, and much more.
Again, I apologize for not posting very much lately. There are big changes happening right now family and I. I will keep you updated about our transition and the future of JLV College Counseling.
Thanks in advance for understanding!
