Keynote Speaker Guides Parents Through The Education Process To Give Their Kids A Competitive Edge

Berkeley, CA, October 15, 2014 – Monica Betson-Montgomery has devoted her life to helping others in one form or another. A first generation immigrant who was raised in south central Los Angeles, this dedicated activist for education has written two books, is a sought-after speaker and, together with her husband, has started a successful company that provides developmentally disabled consumers with family care and services to enhance and develop their lives.

Raising four children of her own, and having scored over 20,000 freshman college applications during her career at the University of California, gave Monica valuable insight into what it takes to better prepare kids for college. Her latest book, The Keys to College: A Road Map for Parents to Guide Their Children (MM & Associates), simplifies this often complex process by providing a step-by-step strategy that can help any parent make their child a more competitive college applicant.

Written in an easy-to-understand style and packed with constructive advice on everything from establishing good study habits to financing college, it is the perfect resource to help parents more easily traverse their student’s educational career from beginning to end.

Monica’s oldest son is testament that her strategies work. After graduating UC Berkeley with a double major in Applied Mathematics and African American Studies, he just completed his Masters in Mathematics at San Francisco State!

Monica Betson-Montgomery completed her undergraduate studies in Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley, and later completed her MBA at St. Mary’s College of Moraga. Her first work, You Too Can Prepare Your Child for College, was inspired by the ongoing need to increase parent awareness of the education process and the importance of their role therein. Her latest book, The Keys to College, is geared to parents who are dedicated to their child’s further education. Monica is a respected professional in the field of education. She makes an exceptional guest speaker who readily engages any audience.

Together with her husband, Monica operates Golden State Residential Adult Program, a successful company that provides superior family care and services to improve the lives of developmentally disabled clients, and continues to commit time and resources to impoverished communities.

The Honorable Myrtle V. Walker, President of Drew Health Foundation. Inc: “As a mother, grandmother, and now a great grandmother, I truly wish The Keys to College had been written during my early years as a parent. My children attended public schools and I spent a great deal of time on campus with very few resources at my disposal to guide me.”
