About Collegewise Conejo Valley
Since she opened the Collegewise Conejo Valley office in 2014, Liz has been spreading the message of an exciting, joyful college admissions experience to families in the surrounding area. Families are delighted with the good humor and enthusiastic celebration of the application process that they encounter when they meet with Liz. Case in point: our Conejo Valley office has a bell that Liz encourages her students to smash with gusto when they submit their first and last applications.
If you visit our office, you might also encounter Liz’s adorable pup, who has a perfect record of irresistibility. Be sure to take a selfie with the glorious, massive oak tree out front—we hear it’s starting to trend on Instagram.

What are people saying about Collegewise Conejo Valley?
Liz was an outstanding counselor. Once our son started to work with Liz, we noticed he became focused and positive about the college application process. Liz really knows how to talk to adolescents with empathy and also “reality checks”! She really helped our son find his voice.

Working with Liz was enlightening. Not only did she help me present myself to colleges in the best light, but she also helped me recognize some of the smaller but more important characteristics that I didn’t know I had. Her process was honest, intuitive, and integral to helping me present myself as an applicant.
Liz made the college search process extremely enjoyable. She really got to know me before she recommended colleges for me to look at. I could have seen myself at every single college that she recommended. I was able to send in all of my applications early because she had me finish them right after the end of summer.
Applying to college is stressful. With Liz as my counselor, my anxieties were alleviated. She kept me on task and on time. I greatly appreciate her insight and guidance, from helping me highlight my strengths in my personal statement to submitting my applications on time. I couldn’t have done it without her!
Liz created a very open, honest relationship with our daughter, guiding her through each step when applying to schools. She was able to break down what can feel like an overwhelming process into manageable, short-term goals. We feel that Liz and Collegewise added great value to our daughter’s selection process.

With Liz working with our daughter, we are proud to say she was admitted to almost every single school she applied to!
