About Us

Professional Background

As an active member in the Higher Education Consultants Association (HECA), the Pacific Northwest chapter of the Association for College Admission Counseling (PNACAC), and an Associate Member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA), Jen faithfully upholds the ethics standards known as the Statement of Principles of Good Practice (HECA, PNACAC) and the IECA Principles of Good Practice.

Jen Rucier received her B.A. in Communication from the University of Puget Sound and earned her M.A. in Education from Seattle University’s Student Development Administration program. The background in student development gives Jen a unique perspective on how student services and student programming can enhance a student’s college experience.  As an undergraduate Jen was a student-athlete competing in varsity crew.  Jen uses that first-hand experience of balancing school, athletics and work to illustrate a realistic perspective of college life to your student.

Professional Development

Attending national conferences, making college visits and engaging in seminars and workshops are all steps Jen takes regularly to ensure that she is providing the most relevant services and up to date information to you.  The knowledge and expertise gained from these experiences translates directly to the value you receive when working with College Search Solution.

My Commitment to You

College Search Solution cannot guarantee admission to a college or university and does not have any leverage with admission staff.  No counselor or consultant does or should tell you otherwise.

Jen can guarantee that she will help your family navigate the college search and application process with your student’s well-being in mind.  Jen is honest with her assessments and opinions, caring in her delivery, thorough with her research and passionate about ensuring that your student is headed down the right post-secondary path.  Every student has an open door before them.  It’s a matter of discovering the right door to walk through!
