Dr. Cathy Richter
With more than 35 years in education at the elementary, middle, high school, and university levels as a teacher, counselor, and principal, I understand the education system. I understand students and what they need to make the most of the opportunities awaiting them. I also know how busy parents are and how little information parents have about how education works and the various options available.
I earned my undergraduate degree in business education and my MA in Educational Counseling from the University of Missouri. My Ph.D. in Educational Leadership was earned at Saint Louis University. I am certified as a guidance counselor and principal in both Missouri and Florida.
Prior to 2017 when I opened my private consulting business, I served as a collegiate high school guidance counselor in Northwest Florida, successfully assisting many high school students with a college-prep curriculum, dual enrollment, AA degree completion, and the college admissions process.
I am the founder and an educational consultant at Collegiate Prep Consulting where I support students and their families through every step of the college prep process.
Your consultant has extensive experiences in the K-12 system as a teacher, administrator, and guidance counselor.
