It felt like we sent Blake on a journey in a faraway land, and he got a tour guide who told him what paths to try and which to turn away from. Not having been in this strange land ourselves, as parents, our greatest fear was we would give wrong directions. Great experience, comfortable for Blake from start to finish!

Collegewise helped make my daughter’s college application process smooth and painless. In the end, my daughter was accepted to and will be attending her first choice school, USD. I could not be more thrilled for Alana, and I owe so much to Collegewise for making my daughter’s dream school a reality!

Collegewise provided me with a better understanding of the college application and decision process than I thought possible. Collegewise’s guidance throughout the process allowed me to really figure out what I was looking for in a college, while also maximizing my options.

I would often be stressed about what I needed to get done or about how things were turning out, but every time I walked out of the office, I was so at ease. I think the most important part about being at Collegewise was how personalized the process was, and how much care and time and effort went into me specifically.

Going to my meetings at Collegewise never felt like a chore, but more as something to look forward to! Everyone in the office is so friendly, willing to help, and made for such great motivators and supporters when it came time to fill in apps and write essays. 10/10!

The college application process is confusing and tedious, and Collegewise really helped with that process. It was reassuring to go over my application with my counselor so that we could make sure that I had a better chance of getting in!

Born in the West Indies (St. Lucia), raised in Massachusetts, Nathania knows, as a first-generation student, that navigating college can be an obstacle. Even as an undergraduate. she has always had an innate desire to serve students and guide them through the college process. Nathania’s first taste of higher education was as an admissions counselor serving the south shore of Massachusetts. She spent six years in admissions and gained experience working at Wentworth Institute of Technology in the heart of Boston and at Bates College, a highly selective small liberal arts college in Maine.
College counseling has always been the end game. Nathania landed in the world of college admissions facilitating essay writing and financial aid workshops, as well as working with students and families on the college application review process. Nathania has spent most of her professional career evaluating what makes a high school student a great fit for college. She values working with high school students, building connections, guiding, and supporting them not just through the college process but through self-development/growth as they gain life skills and learn self-awareness.
Outside of work, Nathania is a cat mom to two cats and a plant mom to dying succulents. She spends most of her free time at IKEA and thrifting. Nathania also loves fashion and interior design! But, most of all, Nathania is excited to continue supporting students and their families through their journey to college.
