Kelly DuBreuil

Founder and owner

Kelly created Southern College Consulting after discovering that many parents and students came to her with questions because of the extensive research she did to help her own two children with the application process. Kelly has always worked in the education field with a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from James Madison University and a master's degree in Reading Education from Clemson University. She completed her Independent Educational Consultant certificate from the University of California-Irvine in August 2016. Kelly is an associate member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association and member of the Southern Association for College Admissions Counseling. It is Kelly’s desire to help each student have great options at the end of the college planning process. As a military spouse for 20 plus years, Kelly especially enjoys working with military dependents and their families because she knows the unique issues with the college process for this population.

Kelly spends several weeks each year visiting colleges to learn what each campus has to offer her students.
