Jennifer Turano, College Counselor

Jennifer graduated from Cornell University with a degree in psychology and spent many years interviewing New York City applicants for Cornell admission. She knew she wanted to join the Collegewise team after enrolling her daughter in the program and seeing firsthand just how stress-free and successful the college application process can really be. In 2015, Jennifer began helping Collegewise secure speaking engagements at high schools and organizations across New York City, then joined our essay editing team before earning a promotion to the role of full-time Collegewise counselor.

A successful sales and marketing executive before turning her passion for working with teens into a full-time career at Collegewise, Jennifer has always had a knack for working with young people both on and off the field. She runs the softball division for her local little league in NYC and has coached teams of all different ages; she’s even been deemed “Best Coach Ever” by many of her athletes. A lover of dessert and historical fiction, Jennifer enjoys exercising while not sweating – if she can do it lying down, she’s in!
