About Us

When we started working with students and their parents during the beginnings of Forward Focused, our emphasis was on those who were pursuing careers in healthcare. A few years later, our business has grown to reflect our clients' needs and the ever changing landscape of ways people learn and work. As advisors, we become part of a team with those who come to us for guidance. At every appointment we see our clients grow toward their true potential, that is why we do what we do.

Bringing out the best in a person opens them up for true success and providing them with the tools and skills they need only adds to that success. We believe that life long learning is at the heart of our business, which is why we work with people of all ages to help them plan a path to reach their next goal.
