Anika Madden

Anika Madden is a donor relations professional, writer/blogger, and mom of 3 kids age 21, 16, and 9. Having gone through the college process (and still going) with her oldest, she is well aware of the frustrations, workload and importance in getting our kids to and through college. Her passion behind the podcast lies in seeing too many kids that are not able to finish college or having to take unwanted breaks simply because of their wide-ranging gaps of knowledge in the process. Knowledge is power and she is here to let parents know that there is much to learn and embrace (yes, even about ourselves) as we aim to help our kids achieve the quality of life that we know they want and deserve.
