A Message From Jim Obernesser

Founder / College Admissions Consultant

I started Your Way To College in 2011 after a long and successful career advising businesses about their HR and employee benefit programs, and several years as a volunteer college admissions counselor for local and national educational organizations. Given that background, I fully understand the need to make sure my clients achieve their objectives and I recognize the importance of maintaining a client relationship that is trusting and flexible. I visit college campuses throughout the year and frequently attend conferences to maintain my ability to provide expert college admissions assistance.
