About Jessica

JLV_photo3Jessica started JLV College Counseling because she has a passion for helping students get to college. Jessica’s mission is to provide knowledgeable guidance through the college planning and admission process so that students choose a college that matches their abilities, talents, goals and interests.

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 her clients.

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.
