CLIENT STORIES

HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR, Natalie - Houston, TX

Meet Natalie who is going into her senior year at competitive DeBakey High School for Health Professions. Ranking in the top 15% of her class, she is an example of a focused student with direction: she has identified the college institutions she will apply to, a probable major of study, and a solid interest in becoming a doctor for her career. She has already started her college applications and is well on her way to success. Here's her story:

I really enjoyed my career exploration with The Wilbanks Consulting Group. I was skeptical that the assessments would be helpful. You know all of this information about yourself, but it's very different to have a test tell you on paper. It was scarily accurate. I never considered a college minor before. This has opened up a lot of options; it would be nice to pick a minor that aligns with my personality AND gives me future career options. I would recommend this service to other high school juniors and seniors.
