Let’s Start With Our Mission

Our mission is to ensure every Your Path client not only makes a strategic college investment – one that promotes long-term opportunity, holistic wealth and happiness – but also learns to evaluate complex decisions, generate and research options, and arrive at an informed, confident decision.

Meet the Founders

JulieAnne Dietz – Founder & Program Director

“Ten years ago, when I first created Your Path, I set out to fill a void by giving motivated high school students the attention, focus and insight they need to make a smart college investment.  Over time I realized that was just the beginning; there was so much more I could share and reinforce to help them not only make a wise college decision, but also lay the foundation for an opportunity rich life.  A student advocate at heart, I am thankful every day that this is my job!”

Mark Dietz – Co-Founder & Business Development (Volunteer)

“Early in my professional career at a major investment bank I learned that I loved designing processes and frameworks that solve problems and help people live better lives.  Working with JulieAnne to build Your Path into a full-service consulting firm has been hugely rewarding because I not only get to help her realize her vision, but in doing so, I also get to indirectly help high school students all over the U.S. (and even Europe) realize their own visions!”

Why Work With Your Path?

14 Resources are Scarce

From school counselors to coaches there are knowledgeable people all around, but there’s also fierce competition for their attention.

14 Your Time is Valuable

With effort most people can make a sensible college choice – but the more time they spend on the process, the less they have for decision-making (and life).

14 It’s About the Future

Most people get the basics of their college search right, but don’t know how to assess the potential long-term impacts of their decision.

14 The Full Picture

From coaches to SAT tutors there’s an expert for everything, but experts that can guide the full process, from athletics to academics are rare (we can!).
