Meet Tanya Aure of Comprehensive College Planning in Point Loma

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tanya Aure.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.

I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and I am a first-generation Filipina. I went to college and law school in Cleveland, Ohio. After law school, I moved to San Diego, got married and then moved to Washington, DC. I was a legal editor with what is now Bloomberg Law for several years and then moved back to San Diego with one kid in tow and pregnant with my second. Unfortunately, I went through a divorce a couple of years after we returned to San Diego. My main concern when we divorced were my boys. I wanted to make sure their financial future was secure, especially when it came to college. When I spoke to my financial advisor about how to protect the money we had already put aside for college, I discovered that college planning was its own niche in the financial industry. At that point, I had just finished my last freelancing project and was looking to build a business in San Diego. After extensive training and research, I started Comprehensive College Planning (CCP) with the purpose of teaching parents what I had learned about the financial aid system and how to pay for college whether they had saved or not.
