Lesley Miller, a national award winning educator, has been working with students in transition from high school to college, primarily those who are undecided about their future plans and goals, for close to 25 years. Leading them towards the avenues of optimum achievement has been her passion. In her roles of adviser, counselor and professor she has nurtured the drives for exploration and motivation which enable students to achieve their full potential and help them to discover their individual purpose within the setting of higher education.

Through the tools of self discovery, Miller’s primary focus is to determine the best college matches, where all of the student’s aspirations, objectives and requirements can be met fully and thrive.

Additionally she provides presentations on dozens of topics available to civic and community groups.
