About Deb & Sarah

The Next Chapter for Deb Malone

The completion of the UC Irvine Certificate Program in 2014, gave me an opportunity to pull together my business background and my love for education which led me to open my Educational Consulting Practice. Traverse College Consulting became the obvious career choice for the next chapter in my life.  

My work experiences coupled with my educational background and career opportunities add up to the skills that allow me to help families sort through the educational possibilities available for their students.  


My practice is directed toward the undergraduate college search, application and finance process. My focus is on ’Student Fit’. Additionally, I use the ’Track It’ curriculum and blend it with College Planner Pro for a structured online, however individualized, approach for each student. I am thoroughly enjoying myself.

Life Opportunities

College changed my life.  I grew up in a small town in Northern Michigan and heading to Ann Arbor was an opportunity of a lifetime.  Having an undergraduate degree from The University of Michigan opened many doors for me over the years and I am invested in bringing this experience to my students.  College is a time and place to learn and grow and the right fit for each client is my primary focus.  By considering each clients talents, needs and wants and using my personal, teaching and finance experience I believe I am qualified and ready to assist you to find the college that best fits you.
