College Consejos’ services are ideal for high school students and their parents seeking knowledge, tools, and resources that can align the high school experience with long-term educational and career goals.
I’m an educator, an encourager, and an advocate for kids who want to continue their studies beyond high school. I guess you could say that es la passion de mi vida to help students achieve their post-secondary dreams! Y padres, I want you to know up front that I’m committed to helping you make wise decisions that have your children’s best interests in mind.
I strongly identify with the term “third culture kid.” I’m a native New Yorker con raices en la República Dominicana — I took the subway during the school year and spent summers in Santiago. No soy ni de aquí ni de alla!
As I think back, I recognize that I was privileged growing up. My mother was born in the USA, and although she didn’t attend college herself, she understood that for me to succeed, she’d have to enroll me in the “good schools.” She also spoke English at home; therefore, it was my first language; I learned Spanish from my abuelos, familia y pues claro — merengue, bachata y salsa!
Simply put, I was fortunate to have the right tools to navigate in this country/culture. In appreciation of my grandparents’ sacrifices, I continued my post-high school education and graduated from Queens College, CUNY, with a Bachelor’s of Psychology degree. I then went on to earn a Masters of School Counseling from New York University.

Palabras Amables / Kind Words
“Ms Sanchez was my guiding light through a tunnel full of doubts, uncertainties, and overwhelm;
She is not only a guidance counselor she’s a friend, teacher, mother, hero but most importantly she’s an amazing person, words fall short to describe her.”
