Hi, I'm Valerie Deveraux, JD
I'm a creative strategist and an attorney who is passionate about helping teens and their parents navigate the process of preparing for college admissions.
I work with 8th to 12th grade students and I believe that starting early not only gives you an advantage, it can also help to lessen anxiety and stress related to preparing for college admissions. It takes time to build your resume so getting started is the key. Over the years I have worked with many clients in setting their goals and creating plans to achieve their desired results. My mentoring approach is to help teens identify the areas they feel passionate about and excel in, discovering their strengths and then charting a course for them that will lead to a unique and powerful college application.
I will create a customized plan based upon their own individual goals, strengths and unique abilities so they can begin preparing for college admission and feel confident about the process. This also includes support and planning on behalf of parents. I understand the process for parents and teens, with two children having completed college and one in the process now.
I look forward to meeting you and working with you and your teen helping to prepare them to chart their course in the direction of their dreams.
