As a college advisor, Laurie Kiguchi works with students throughout Santa Cruz County, California to achieve their dreams of attending college. Students gain self-awareness and understanding through the college planning process, leading to a good fit between the individual student and the college of choice.


Laurie's goal is to guide students to receive offers of admission from a range of schools, all of which are good fits in terms of academics, student life, and affordability.
