We help families legally and ethically position themselves to get as much financial aid as possible. In these tough economic times, this has been a valuable resource for families.

Chastisy Barnes

Office Manager

I want to use my experience to help the families who like me may be struggling with where to go or what to do once they get there. I will go that extra mile to make sure your family gets customer service that we all enjoy receiving. My goal is to help our family to reach their goals.

Mariha Holdridge

Administrative Assistant

I enjoy working for Grossman & Associates because it gives me the ability to help families and students with all their educational needs. I also enjoy having the ability to meet new people on a daily basis and work with one of the most professional teams in Spokane.

Anjeanette Sausedo

Administrative Assistant

Given my diverse personal and professional background, I feel as though my compilation of experience affords me the ability to provide quality support to our clients. Additionally, my experiences drive me to continually improve upon the level of quality information and support imparted during each client interaction, which in turn increases the successfulness of our students.

Melissa Cellini

Student Counselor

Melissa Cellini holds a Masters in School Counseling from Portland State and a Bachelors in Psychology and Education from Gonzaga University. Her favorite parts of school counseling have been supporting students through the college application process and teaching life skills and strategies that can make teenage years less stressful.

Sonja Horn

Associate Advisor

My role with College Funding Systems has been eye-opening in how drastically the dynamics of college preparation and costs have sky-rocketed since my time in college! It’s a whole new ballgame out there; one that needs to be addressed to such a deeper degree than was ever the case in my day.

Jon Terry

Front Desk/Admin Assistant

I enjoy my job with our company for a variety of reasons. Perhaps most importantly, I enjoy my job because of the people I work with. In my personal and professional life, I value loyalty above all else. I have the privilege of working with a team of people who go above and beyond to empower me to help our clients to the very best of my abilities.

Steve McLinden

Associate Advisor

From starting the conversation of higher education with your child, to SAT preparations, counseling, and helping with the financial forms myself and our team of experts are here to help you in any way we can. I am looking forward to meeting you and working with you in the future.
