We educate, inform and assist individuals, families and organizations in the college process and address trends in higher education. Our goal is to help individuals make a decision that will positively impact their lives. We believe education is just one pathway to success, resulting in a better quality of life and ultimately better for society at large. We do not take a one size all approach.

Our services are dedicated to advancing the aspirations and goals of our Way Finder clients and community.
We offer Career Coaching services including resume review, resume and cover letter writing, and interview preparation. Career trajectories evolve and are not a linear path. Therefore, we recognize the importance of career guidance.
We believe wellness, mindfulness and healthy habits serve as the foundation for a better life. Personal development and well-being is the heart of Way Finder. We offer personal coaching services to help our clients with their academic and personal journey, through self-exploration methods. We conduct personal wellness, life coaching, and referral services to support our clients in discovering and surpassing their goals.

Last year, my son Kamryn began the college application process. Choosing which colleges to apply to, the actual college application itself, completion of the application for federal financial aid as well as meeting all the deadlines was very overwhelming. A close friend of mine referred me to Dr. Abouzeide and her firm, Way Finder Educational Consulting. Dr. Abouzeide’s help and guidance were invaluable. She first helped my son prioritize which colleges to apply to based on his criteria. Dr. Abouzeide then assisted Kamryn with the college application process and made sure he met all of the deadlines. Kamryn was admitted to 12 top ranked colleges in the United States including Berkeley, Boston College, Georgetown University, New York University, Notre Dame, Rice University, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, University of Southern California, Wake Forest University, Washington University, Washington Lee University, and the University of Florida.
Dr. Abouzeide was instrumental in helping Kamryn to be admitted into the college of his choice. She is a dedicated college advisor who cares about her clients. We especially appreciated her moral support during this very stressful time. Dr. Abouzeide went above and beyond to assist my son. Kamryn has decided to attend Notre Dame and we are so excited about the outcome. We plan on using Way Finder in the near future for our younger child.
Thank you, Dr. Abouzeide, we truly appreciate your dedication, support, and guidance.
