ABOUT ME

KRISTIN RANSFORD HIEMSTRA
Founder and President

For over 20 years I have helped high school students in the nation's top-ranked high schools get admitted to the colleges of their choice. Because of this experience, I have an intuitive sense of what approach to take for stellar results. I am regularly called in by local high schools to do talks about how students can stand out in the college admissions' process because this is my area of expertise.

 

I work differently than other college counselors and take a long-term approach that incorporates a student's personal and career development. My comprehensive approach was inspired by seeing thousands of students graduate both high school and college unsure of their unique interests, talents, and qualities. 
 

My passion is working one-on-one with students because I can really get to know students to create a targeted college list and an authentic admissions strategy that will set them apart. My students are proud of their applications and feel that it truly represents who they are as both a student and a person. Admission's staffs agree and regularly admit my clients.

In addition, I've worked with the incoming Robertson Scholars and I am currently an Adjunct Lecturer in Management, Innovation & Entrepreneurship at NC States Poole School where I teach courses on Emotional Intelligence and Creating culture.  

I would love to work with you. Let's talk today.
