A Message from Elizabeth Levine,
Independent Educational Consultant
My background consists of a successful career in the corporate arena for over 25 years in varying managerial and director positions. I’ve demonstrated success in project coordination and organization development and am a creative problem solver with the ability to generate new ideas and initiate change.
I have three children who, over the previous ten years, have been through the many stages of the college admissions process. I managed each of their college journey’s successfully using all resources available to me. Over time, I have had other parents and students come to me for help with their college admissions process, successfully helping each of them with their college selection and admissions direction.
Through my interactions with students and their families, I realized how passionate I was to help them navigate this journey. Understanding their college choice will be one of the most important and significant financial decisions they will ever make. I wanted to pursue this career as an Independent Educational Consultant, where I could help others on an individualized path to success.
After completing my certification in College Admissions Counseling through UCLA, I began my practice, Signature College Counseling, over three years ago. I am a Professional Member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA) and fully enveloped in admissions counseling, bringing students and colleges together.
One might ask, is being successful with my children and other family’s journeys through the college admissions process enough to qualify me to help you with your journey? I am qualified because I can share your frustrations and anxiety that this process creates with the abundant opinions and research options that are available, which only adds to the apparent overwhelming task ahead of you. It’s enough to make one freeze in their path. It is my wealth of experience in problem-solving and project management by creating a systematic approach with timetables and goals, outlining each critical milestone, as well as the over 100 families I have helped thus far, which will keep you on task and focused to achieve your goal.
