Who We Are
ForWord Consulting LLC is a small company of independent college admissions counselors and educational consultants located inside the Northern Virginia beltway.
Cathy Ganley, ForWord Consulting's owner and Senior College Counselor, has a background steeped in higher education. She understands the admissions process and hand holds each client through it, from choosing colleges, creating a working resume, preparing for the SATs/ACTs, completing applications, understanding financial aid, and applying for scholarships.
Many call Cathy the "teen whisperer" because she understands how teens think and what they need for motivation. Cathy thinks that it's because she's tired of talking loudly to get her own children to listen but is grateful for the praise nonetheless.
