About Me

Wendy picture Wendy Williams, M.A. has been an influential part in assisting families by helping students with their educational goals since 1997.

As a wife and mother of three children between the ages of three and twelve, Wendy knows firsthand that each child has his or her own strengths and challenges. And as a member of our national professional organization, Independent Education Consultants Association (IECA), Wendy meets the highest professional standards in an increasingly crowded field.

She enjoys spending traveling, riding bikes, hiking, and playing sports like tennis and golf with her family. She believes in doing what she loves and takes pride in her chosen career. She is proud of her education and her company, but nothing makes her prouder than being a mother of 3 precious boys.

Wendy began her training over 20 years ago by working for a well-established educational consultant. Since that time, she has established the College Counseling Department at William & Reed Academy in Johns Creek; worked as a college counselor at the Ben Franklin Academy, a private independent day school; and consulted for both the precollege and graduate sectors of Kaplan, Inc. More recently, she has established the College Counseling Department at William & Reed Academy in Johns Creek and created a partnership with Teegarden Education Group. She works with families across the country in advising them on the right educational.

Navigating a student's educational destiny can be very stressful for the entire family. Wendy's counseling background helps to demystify the process by implementing structure, guidance and a calm environment so her students can focus on what really matters - interests, abilities, school options and career goals.

Wendy's educational background and hands-on experience allows her to focus on the student's academic interests and social needs. She graduated from Kennesaw State University with a B.S. in Psychology and received a master's degree in Professional Psychology, specializing in Counseling from Argosy University. She is also an alumni member of the Chi-Omega Fraternity.
