She focuses on four key areas:
- Assessment & Planning – discussing course selection, testing strategy and providing a variety of college, major and career assessment tools
- College Identification – finding the right fit academically, socially, emotionally and financially
- Application Strategy – helping students identify their own competitive edge with Brag Sheet preparation, essay-brainstorming and editing and enrichment ideas
- Scholarship Search – identifying merit-based and need-based scholarship opportunities
Lee has lived in Charlotte for 20 years and is now an empty-nester – with two college graduates– so she has survived this adventure both personally and professionally.
