My College Roadmap was created out of my desire to share the college preparation and application process with equally interested students and parents. Over the years, I have visited numerous college campuses and have asked hundreds of questions to college admission representatives, students, and parents alike. Based on information gathered, I developed a format for explaining to others the areas of importance that I believe apply to those who want to attend a four-year college.
Thus, through my own experiences as a parent of college-bound students, I decided that I would focus on two questions; "Where do I begin?" and "What happens next?” My College Roadmap delivers seminars which answer these important questions.
Additionally, I know that paying for college is a big concern for many students and parents, it is a concern that I share with you. Therefore, throughout my seminars, I consistently address the importance of finding ways to pay for college in order to keep student loan debt to a minimum or eliminate it altogether.
I grew up in Southern California and joined the US Navy out of high school. While in the Navy, I earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) degree from Chapman College in Orange, California.
I later worked for Pacific Telephone in San Diego. During that time, I earned a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from the University of San Diego and a Juris Doctor (JD) degree from Thomas Jefferson School of Law. I then began a career with the Office of the Attorney General in Arizona. Together with my wife and two children, we settled in Arizona in 2006.
Since 2018, I have been a Criminal Defense Lawyer in Prescott. For more information on my practice please visit www.mitchpadillalaw.com
Effective September 8, 2020, I was appointed to the Yavapai College District Governing Board, District 5. I feel so fortunate to be a part of an educational institution of higher learning. As a result, I will keep the My College Roadmap website online for informational purposes and but will not be offering college advising services at this time.
