John Baier, M.S.
College Consultant Director
John Baier, M.S. studied at Purdue University. He completed his Bachelor's in psychology and Master's in Health and Kinesiology. As someone fascinated with impacting people's behavior, he took his knowledge of health and behavior change theory and worked with students as an executive functioning specialist.
His previous work with students helped them to better understand how to create effective organization strategies during the college application process. Additionally, this work also provided insight into how to overcome procrastination to stay on task and complete application components on time.
One of John's passions is finance and how to better understand how money works. He likes to help students truly understand the financial impact of decisions that they will make. Whether that is through understanding the actual cost of loans over time, or how to effectively maximize their tuition budget.
John and his girlfriend moved to Austin in August of 2019 and love to try new brunch places or take in the scenery on a trail. When they're not busy catching the latest new show on Netflix, they also enjoy taking walks around the area and having a picnic at the park every now and again.
One word to describe John would be determined. He loves to exercise and closely follows the Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Pacers. A fun fact about him is that he started a food pantry at the University of Purdue during his undergraduate studies. His goal with his work is to give back to others, which is why he is so excited to be able to help students on this journey.
“John is extremely patient and kind but also kept my daughter on track with deadlines and expectations. John made some great college recommendations that was based on his personal experience and expertise. He was also very encouraging and celebrated my daughter’s successes with her."
