Meet Our Advisory Board
At CollegePlannerPro, our members are our greatest assets. That's why we decided to put together a formal Member Advisory Board to help inform our product roadmap. We opened up applications to all members and then selected a team of passionate CollegePlannerPro users whose traits are representative of our larger community. We count on our board members to contribute to discussions, provide feedback on early prototypes, and participate in occasional focus groups. Our goal is to more deeply understand the various ways in which consultants are currently using the platform and how our technical initiatives can benefit the greatest number of people.
The existence of the CollegePlannerPro Advisory Board doesn't mean we stopped listening to other members. All member feedback is valuable and instrumental to the continued development of our platform. We continue to ensure all member voices are heard.
Featured Advisory Board Members
Spencer Koller Sàrl Consultants for Higher Education
CollegePlannerPro has streamlined my working life! Students and families are impressed with the resources and I love the calendar, communications, billing and multitude of other tools. I advise international students and I look forward to joining the advisory board, contributing my experience with applicants to universities in North America and other parts of the world.
Hale Education Group
My experience with CollegePlannerPro has changed the way I work with students, as we can now find information with ease and in real time - in one place! I am delighted to serve on the advisory board to not only enhance my capabilities, but that of the entire counseling landscape as well.
The College Lady
CollegePlannerPro is an essential part of the value that I offer my clients. It helps me be more efficient, and also allows my clients a platform of offerings to explore as part of their college search. My students trust the information on CPP, and will go there first, even before checking the site their high schools use.
Magellan College Counseling
I've been using CPP for nearly 8 years. My multiple counselor team relies on CPP to help us connect with our students and provide an organized way for them to proceed through their college application process. Parents also love CPP and we've closed many a deal after showing parents the system. I'm thrilled and honored to provide input into CollegePlannerPro's continuing development on the advisory board.

Get Going Workshops
I was an early adopter of CPP, and from the start, I've been impressed with their willingness to listen to users' ideas for improvement. I'm so thrilled to be able to contribute to the ways CPP can evolve and benefit both the advising community and the students we serve.
Amy S. Jasper
I always joke that I invested in CPP when I had 1/2 a client. Well it was actually one whole client, and I decided to take a leap of faith. The software has grown with my business. As long as I have my MacBook with me, I have absolutely everything I need: student and family information, notes, conversations, scheduling, etc. My clients love that it is user friendly, keeps them organized and everything is one place. I'm looking forward to being a part of the continuing evolution of this awesome product.

Being on the Advisory Board will bring my school and private counseling perspectives to professionals in the field. Dr. Deborah Hardy, GuidED Consulting, LLC
As a totally non-tech person I was skeptical of using a technology-based program to organize my very hands-on business. But CollegePlannerPro has been a huge help and an asset to me, my clients and my team. I know there is so much more that I can learn and I think my non-tech perspective would bring a lot to the table to make things even more user friendly! Marni Haft Levine, 5L College Consulting
