Who am I?

Lana Yilmaz, a native of western Canada, has over 24 years experience in education as a teacher, counselor and mother and is no stranger to the planning required for a cross-continent move and strategies to lessen the culture shock.  Her own two sons were educated in Pakistan, Turkey, and Canada before making their way to Canada to continue their education at McMaster University and the University of British Columbia.

Lana is a graduate of the Independent Educational Consultant program through the University of California-Irvine, the Canada Course for Education Agents (CCEA) and a member of numerous College Admission Counseling groups.

Since 2015, she has provided personalized support to students and families by explaining the application process, helping each student discover their niche, coaching them to work through the steps of the application process, acting as a calming voice when tensions rise, and holding pre-departure meetings.
