Meet Stephanie

Find Your Path with Eklund Coaching

Hi! I specialize in coaching high school and college students on how to set themselves up for success in their education, careers and life. Career Direct is an incredible guidance tool that will provide you with insights, clarity, direction and confidence. It also takes the guesswork out of choosing a major, which saves you and your family valuable time and money and prevents much frustration, stress, and debt. My passion is to ease the burden of those who follow the road behind me. I have shepherded my own children and walked alongside others through the college decision making process, and I know how overwhelming it is. But it doesn’t have to be! Transitioning into and out of college should be an exciting and rewarding time in life; with help from me and Career Direct resources it can be.

College Application Support

Guidance to successfully complete applications and essays

On-line applications and portals are varied and often confusing. Along with the challenge of presenting yourself in the limited space they give you, the application process can be daunting. I offer explanation and oversight of applications and timelines, essay and short answer review, referrals to valuable quality free resources, final application review and can answer questions along the way.

Client Testimonials

Stephanie’s help in finding the colleges has been so great. She helped me ask questions and look at different aspects of college that I didn’t even know to look for. I was also really confused on what high school classes I should take for college, and she really helped me find both classes that I am interested in and other college prep opportunities. 

Noelle (HS Junior)

College applications has become a stressful time for both students and parents. Stephanie has helped to guide us through this challenging process with her knowledge, optimism and motivating spirit.  Her faith is the foundation of her work.  She was so supportive and always willing to answer questions.  I highly recommend Stephanie’s services if you’re seeking an experienced college consultant.

Cheryl (Parent)

The process of choosing colleges and majors was going to be stressful. I was so glad to have Stephanie's guidance through it. Her help was very informative and I appreciate it so much!

Jennifer (HS Senior)

Stephanie is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She provides guidance in a kind and respectful manner. I appreciate her attention to detail, but also her awareness of the bigger picture as it relates to our daughter’s college, major, and career goals. We found the Career Direct Assessment spot on for our daughter. This is an excellent and valuable tool as she pursues college and future careers.  I would highly recommend Stephanie Eklund for all of your educational and career coaching needs!
