For nearly two decades, Wendy Richard Tilford has dedicated her life to helping families and students achieve academic success. As an advisor, speaker and franchise owner of a Huntington Learning Center Houston located in the Houston metroplex, Wendy is one of the most highly sought after consultants and college counselors in Texas.
Guided by a belief that education opens doors of opportunity, Wendy works every day to provide families and students with educational resources, programs and strategies that create a strong foundation for life-long learning and future success.
After spending years in public policy, her transition to education was a natural progression. Her passion for education and leadership, as well as her business savvy, caught the attention of corporate leaders of the foremost tutoring and test prep center in the country. That corporation asked her to serve on its Franchise Advisory Council, and later chose her to serve as president of its Greater Houston Co-op. There, she led efforts to create strategic partnerships and increase brand awareness in Houston and the surrounding area. While her list of professional accomplishments continued to grow so did her desire to help more families develop a roadmap for academic success.
