Andrea Main | Principal Consultant

The years that Andrea spent working with, and in, various educational systems has given her a unique and wide perspective for counseling students in pursuing their own academic paths.  Her experience as an educator and professional writer combine to provide her students with excellent mentorship to maximize their college application potential.

Her move to independent education consulting was driven by a desire to provide deeper guidance to individual students than can be given by a college counselor within the school system.  Students with whom she has worked are attending colleges both nationally and internationally.  Many of these students received major merit scholarships from strategically chosen colleges based on their academics coupled with the extra-curricular activities for which Andrea coached them.

Andrea is a Board Member on the board of a major state-wide scholarship program, an Advisor for a student-led non-profit corporation.  She has been awarded the Independent Educational Consultant Certificate from the University of California Irvine and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a specialization in Learning Styles and Communication.  Andrea is an Associate Member of the Independent Educational Consultant Association (IECA) and a member of the Pacific Northwest Association for College Admission Counseling (PNACAC).
