Looking for a speaker for your next event?

Christen has been the keynote speaker at universities, high schools, and homeschooling events. She is passionate about sharing her scholarship success story and the strategies she used to earn over $900,000 in scholarships to inspire others to chase their educational goals.

Interested in having her come to engage your current or potential students?



Christen shares winning scholarship strategies and alternative funding opportunities with students. Learning how to search for specific and legitimate scholarships and how to keep an organized scholarship list, students increase their chances of winning.


By teaching students how to create professional education resumes, we can set students up for asking teachers, coaches, and mentors to write successful letters of recommendation and submitting quality college applications becomes much easier. 


In an effort to take the stress out of the essay portion of the application, Christen reads some great (and some not-so-great) essays. She then breaks down the essay criteria and gives tips and tricks to let students' creative writing begins. 


The University of Holy Cross wholeheartedly recommends Crescent City College Consulting for their exceptional scholarship and resume writing workshop. Christen’s expertise and guidance were invaluable in bringing prospective students to our campus. The workshop was well-structured, engaging, and tailored to meet the specific needs of our students, resulting in an overwhelming positive response from participants.

Arden Cahill Academy values its partnership with Crescent City College Consulting. Christen delivered a variety of workshops for our seniors including resume building, scholarship essay writing, and unpacking the Common App registration. As a result, our first senior class earned scholarships averaging $172,000 per graduate which we believe is a testament to the success of her guidance.
