Veronica Wilson, College Consultant

Veronica Wilson brings nearly a decade and a half of diverse experience to her work as a college consultant.

After earning her BS in Journalism from Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Communications, she began her career fueled by a deep passion to understand the stories of others and has been continuously homing her craft of storytelling ever since. Her years of working with young people – from time in the middle school classroom, to school administration, to high school recruitment – have exposed her to the inner-workings of both lower and higher education.

As a consultant with On My Way, Veronica is fiercely dedicated to getting to know each of her clients as the unique and complex individual they are, and helping them get into the college that is their right fit. Veronica sees the college search process as an invaluable opportunity for adolescents to not only build their independence and find a place to continue their education, but also as an opportunity for tremendous self-reflection and growth. Her approach is collaborative and consultative, as she believes in empowering her clients to have agency and confidence in their decisions about college and career.

Veronica lives in Mill Valley, CA and also works virtually with students from around the world.
