Abena (Abby) Boaitey-Sowah

CW Education (formerly CollegeWise Education & Career Services) was founded in 2008, by Abena Boaitey-Sowah.  The idea to start CW Education grew out of Abby's genuine passion for helping students discover their individual strengths and passions, and aligning these qualities with their academic goals and aspirations.   Her goal is to help each student find a school that is the 'best-fit' for them to grow and reach their full potential both academically and socially.


In addition to regularly attending education conferences to keep abreast with trending topics and changes in admissions information, Abby has visited over 50 colleges in the U.S, participated in the IECA Summer Training Institute for Independent Counselors and the UCLA College Counseling Certificate Program.   Prior to working in educational consulting,  Abby worked in the financial services and telecommunications industries.  She is a University of Wisconsin-Madison graduate, and a professional member of IECA (Independent Education Consultants Association).
