As an advocate for reducing student loan debt, Keia has traveled throughout the east coast providing FREE workshops on “FInancial Smarts for Students”.  She offers 45-minute presentations and one-day sessions on financial aid eligibility, spreading your financial aid through the semester, student loan borrowing the smart way, and repaying student loan debt through volunteerism.


Having worked in the higher education field in financial aid and scholarships offices for the past 11 years, she has witnessed many college students overwhelmed with the high cost to pursue a degree; and the amount of student loan debt they will incur in just four (4) years.  Keia relates to their dilemma having had to rely on student loans while pursuing my bachelor and current master’s degree.
