Assess where you are

Start at the beginning.   

We'll look at your resources, and put it all down in a spreadsheet.  This will be our starting point.  

I'm an accountant.  Spreadsheets are what I do!


CHOOse school carefully 

College school choice is the #1 determinant of student debt - I'm looking at you, out-of-state tuition!


then...the financial stuff

This is where the magic happens!  I have SO much information to share!  

I have two kids to get through college debt-free. I'm determined to do it!  

I'll show you how too!

High-Income Family?

It doesn't take much to be considered high income!  (At least in the Federal-government-giving-out-aid context)

How much have you saved?  How much can you spend out of current cash flow?  Which schools give the best aid?  We can talk through all of this to figure out how to get your kids through college without a student debt hangover too!

Hi - I'm Nancy

I want to change your child's financial future...and I'm starting with student debt.

Student debt is not a foregone conclusion!

I can show you how to avoid student debt - even if you think you make too much money!

Latest from the blog:

why did college become so expensive?
have you had "the talk" with your teen yet?   The one about your college budget?

Pretend student loans don't exist! (Your kids will thank you!)

We need to stop the student debt madness!

And we can - one student at a time 

Please - tell a friend!  

United we stand!  Take the no-debt pledge!  You'll be the Parent of the Year!
