Hello! My name is Laura Manko and I am here to help you with the college process. As a licensed High School Counselor, I have been helping high school students get into college and achieve their future goals for 15 years!

I have experience with college admissions and applications, financial aid, scholarships, test prep, career and college exploration, resume writing and so much more. I received my Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Humanities & Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh. I then went on to receive my Masters in Education (M.Ed.) in School Counseling from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and Pupil Personnel certification from Duquesne University.My focus to help students and their families navigate, explore, and achieve their personal and educational goals!
