About Us

Get to know more about CollegePlannerPro!

Our Beginning

Brooke and Travis Daly, a husband and wife team, are the co-founders of CollegePlannerPro.

Travis began creating an ad hoc solution for Brooke’s independent college consulting company, Advantage College Planning, in 2009 when her business began growing beyond what could be managed using spreadsheets, hand-written notes, etc. Travis spent some free time to create a simple solution for Brooke’s college counseling business while working full-time as an application developer.

The idea that other IECs could benefit from what had been built for Brooke was introduced with Brooke was repeatedly asked by fellow IECs what she used to manage her business. That is when the light went on and CollegePlannerPro was born.

In a short time, CollegePlannerPro has quickly evolved to serve the needs of IECs worldwide. Since its inception, the system has evolved leaps and bounds from its initial version. We attribute the success to the IECs and CollegePlannerPro team members working closely to create tools tailored specifically for IECs.

We sincerely thank the educational consulting community for making us a part of it.
