    How to Craft the Journey from High School to Successful Career, with Trusted Expert Linda Hollenback

    How to Craft the Journey from High School to Successful Career, with Trusted Expert Linda Hollenback

    Linda Hollenback began her professional journey as a high school Latin teacher prior to pursuing her Masters in Higher Education Management. She then found herself in the role of Associate Director for the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. The underlying theme of her career has been to be the partner who helps to lighten the load and enables students to shine.

    She launched Hollenback Consulting when her friends and family reflected back to her what she couldn't see: she was meant to help students find their way into and through college into a fulfilling career. The ParenT(w)een Connection is proud to have Linda as one of the Founding Members of our Trusted Expert Network. Learn more at www.parentweenconnection.com/trusted-experts

    Join us as we chat with Linda about the questions to ask your emerging adult and the milestones you want to pay attention to as you help them navigate the college admissions process.
