Louisiana's Preferred
College Advising Company

Our goal is simple; to give students the right direction to research the perfect major, submit quality applications, write stand-out essays, find relevant scholarships, and navigate test prep options– we do it all! In simple words, We take the hassle and headache out of the college admission process so that you can focus on what is important – your future.


If you need help narrowing down a major or a list of schools, or you want guidance with your essays, or you want to focus strictly on scholarships, or maybe you want to have your applications reviewed before you submit them- we will create a customized plan to ensure you feel comfortable and confident throughout the college application process.

I meet with some families only once and together we create a game plan of the necessary next steps to take. While I remain an active part of the college process for other families, meeting multiple times throughout their college planning, essays and applications. I still meet with some students well into their college years to assist with scheduling classes each semester and sending them relevant scholarship opportunities. You get to decide how much help your family will require and how hands on you would like me to be in your college decisions.

Founder, Director

"I strive to provide the college mentoring I wish I would have had when I was applying as an undergrad." 

Born and raised in southeast Louisiana, and being a first-generation college graduate, Christen knows first hand the struggles associated with navigating college admissions. She used the adversities against her to fuel her desire to attend college debt-free. Her hard work and dedication paid off when she was awarded over $900,000 in scholarships for her own college education, essentially getting paid to go to college. She graduated with her BS in Biology from University of Holy Cross in New Orleans and is working towards her MBA at LSUS.
