President’s Welcome Message

Gael M. Casner

HECA President

I’d like to welcome you to HECA and hope you take this opportunity to explore the wealth of information provided in our website. Once you spend a bit of time with us, you’ll understand how unique we are to the world of educational consulting. We are especially proud of our reputation as a warm, friendly group of professionals willing to share our experiences and insights. We are also proud of the attention we pay to the principles of professional development and ethics, core values that have served us well since our founding in 1997.

We like working with a variety of students: from the gifted to the struggling, from the artists to the athletes, from those who come from enriched environments to those who have great need. In fact, over 90% of us dedicate time and resources to pro bono work. That’s just who we are.

I invite you to read on and explore our website to learn more about all that HECA has to offer. Please contact us if you have any questions.
