Tuition Consultant

Graduated from U of Colorado-Boulder

Double Major: Psychology and Philosophy

From Vancouver, WA

I paid out-of-state tuition whole college career Graduated with over $150,000 in student loan debt. Every year I told myself I’d get that in-state thing next year and it never happened. I knew I was throwing money away but rationalized that I’d make so much after I graduated that it wouldn’t even matter. It was like monopoly money. Now I’d like to prevent others from making my mistake.

Book Consultation with Jake

Our phone consultation with Jake was very informative and helpful. I am the parent of a high school senior. My daughter and I now have a complete understanding of the commitment necessary if she wants to attend the out of state college of her choice. Maria L.


My daughter and I had a phone consultation with Jake. He was extremely sensitive to her feelings, very knowledgeable, and really gave us a good overview of what our options are. I would recommend this company without reservation. Thanks! Gail L.



Lead Client Manager

Graduated from U of Wisconsin-Oshkosh

Major: Journalism

From Oconto Falls, WI

Went to school in-state graduating with a total college loan debt less than what most out-of-state students pay for just one year. “I was lucky enough at the time to want to attend a college that was in-state. Since then I got to work with a world-renowned ad agency in New York City and finally found my new home in Colorado…I don’t know if I’d get to be where I am today had I paid out-of-state tuition somewhere.” She adds: “Go Packers!”

She is very excited about the opportunity to be act as a tuition consultant helping students keep their education expenses to a minimum and not hold them back from the opportunities life has to offer.

Minneapolis Comm & Tech College

Graduated Air Traffic Control Program with 4.0 GPA

From Minnesota

After completing the Air Traffic Control program in Minnesota, I realized it was not the right path for me. Thankfully, paying in-state tuition helped me minimize nasty loans. Due to the big savings with in-state tuition, I was able to venture away from MN in 2013, and am now living the dream in the great state of Colorado. I think everyone should be able to afford to live their life after college instead of struggling to survive; thus, it is my absolute pleasure to help students and families through the in-state residency process. When I’m not in the office, you’ll find me in the backcountry, either climbing mountains, fighting bears, or solving my Rubik’s cube in an igloo.
