IN SHERRI'S WORDS:
"I HAVE A PASSION FOR MENTORING TEENAGERS.  I ENJOY ASSISTING YOUNG ADULTS AND AM ESPECIALLY DEDICATED TOWARD HELPING THEM REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL AS THEY SET OUT TO ACCOMPLISH THEIR DESTINATIONS. MY MISSION STATEMENT IS .....CHANGING THE WORLD, ONE STUDENT AT A TIME!"   I AM INTENTIONAL IN HELPING STUDENTS KNOW THE VALUE THEY HOLD AND INSPIRING THEM TOWARDS THE EXCITING FUTURE THAT IS AHEAD OF THEM.  

WITH A HOUSE FULL OF TEENS WITH A LOT OF QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT TO DO NEXT, I DECIDED THAT I WANTED TO BECOME AN EXPERT ON THE COLLEGE ADMISSIONS PROCESS AS WELL AS A MASTER OF THE ART OF SCHOLARSHIPS AND FINANCIAL AID IN ORDER TO HELP STUDENTS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.  THIS IS HOW MY PERSONAL COLLEGE COACH WAS BORN. AFTER MANY YEARS, IT TRANSITIONED INTO IMAGINE COLLEGE COACHING. I HAVE BROKEN THE ADMISSIONS PROCESS DOWN INTO MANY SMALL STEPS IN ORDER TO GIVE THE PROCESS THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF ATTENTION AND EFFORT.  I CONTINUE VISIT UNIVERSITIES ACROSS THE NATION, BUILD STRONG RELATIONSHIPS WITH ADMISSION COUNSELORS, AND AM AN EXPERT IN THE AREA OF  SCHOLARSHIPS.  I RECEIVE WEEKLY EMAILS FROM AMAZING PEOPLE TRYING TO FIND STUDENTS TO BENEFIT FROM THEIR GENEROUS SCHOLARSHIP DOLLARS.   

I CAN’T DO ALL THE WORK FOR YOU, PROMISE YOU ACCEPTANCE INTO YOUR PREFERRED SCHOOL, OR GIVE YOU A FREE RIDE, BUT I CAN PROVIDE YOU WITH EXPERT INSIGHT INTO THE TRICKY ROAD THAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO TRAVEL. I CAN ENCOURAGE YOU ALONG THE WAY AND POINT OUT THE THINGS THAT CAN BE EASY TO MISS WITHOUT AN EXPERIENCED GUIDE.    THROUGHOUT THIS PROCESS, I HOPE TO HELP YOU WITH APPLICATIONS, INTERVIEWS, TESTING, SCHOLARSHIPS, RESUMES AND SO MUCH MORE.

I AM AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF THE TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF COLLEGE ADMISSIONS COUNSELING AND HAVE OVER 1000 HOURS COACHING EXPERIENCE IN THIS FIELD.  

THE JOURNEY CAN BE EXCITING AND THE DESTINATION WILL BE WORTH THE EFFORT!  I’D LOVE TO BE YOUR GUIDE!  TOGETHER, WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD....ONE STUDENT AT A TIME!
