"Janine was great to work with and I was able to get my associate and bachelor degrees plus two construction management certificates in 14 months. She mapped out all of my classes,  gave me a schedule, and helped me each step of the way. I immediately got hired in the career I wanted and didn't have to waste 3 more years and thousands of dollars doing it the "traditional" way!"
