Jessica started JLV College Counseling because she has a passion for helping students get to college. While her initial reason for starting JLV College Counseling was to be an independent educational consultant, she found it was not the right fit for her. JLVCollegeCounseling.com has now become a free resource for prospective and current college students, as well as their parents and guardians. Jessica believes that college admissions and financial aid information should be available to all students and families, no matter their financial circumstances. Therefore, everything available at JLVCollegeCounseling.com is free and no family will be charged for any information or advice they receive from the site or Jessica. The only “income” Jessica receives from JLV College Counseling is from the ads you may see throughout the site, as well as affiliate links that will always be marked.
Jessica knows and understands the college admissions process can be an extremely stressful time for students and their parents and it brings a lot of questions and concerns. Jessica’s primary goal is to help minimize anxiety for both students and their parents as they move through the process together.
As an admissions officer, Jessica traveled throughout the United States meeting prospective students. She also read and made decisions on thousands of college admissions applications, planned college visits events, trained campus tour guides, made decisions on admissions marketing materials, and served on scholarship committees. With her in depth experience on the college side of admissions, she understands all aspects of the college admissions process and shares this information with students and families.
In addition to her work experience, Jessica strives to stay on top of admissions trends by participating in professional college admissions organizations, reading admissions publications, networking with college admissions professionals, and visiting college campuses.
