Vicki Nelson has more than 35 years of experience in higher education as a college professor, academic advisor, speech coach and administrator. She has also weathered the college parenting experience successfully with her three daughters — all now graduated and married. Vicki’s experiences as both the parent of college students and as a professional working with students and their families every day provide her with a special perspective on college parenting and student success and inspired her to launch the website College Parent Central (www.collegeparentcentral.com). When she isn’t on campus or writing, you will find Vicki playing flute in a local orchestra, kayaking, or in her favorite role of “Gram.”
College Parent Magazine may be new but our expertise runs deep — built on 15 years of working with hundreds of schools nationwide, collaborating with experts (student life, finance, career prep and more) and our own personal parenting experiences.
