I am Bethany Fernandez, owner and coach with Elevate Achievement. I began my own journey in Nikiski, Alaska where I graduated top of my high school class, enabling me to attend Vanguard University of Southern California with an academic merit scholarship. I graduated from college with honors in 2003.
In 2004, I began supporting California high school students in their pursuit of higher education. Upon returning to Alaska, in 2015, I created Elevate Achievement as a means to continue the work, serving as the bridge for Alaskan students and families to higher education. It is a great honor to walk with students and families through the college admissions process and I am grateful for the many parents who put their trust in me.
I live in Anchorage with my husband and three daughters. I love Alaska summers, my backyard, fashion and my family. To stay active, I like to hike in the summer and snowshoe in the winter - any suggestions on some great peaks to conquer are welcome!
