About The Founder
With over 20 years in the corporate world, Bernice Feaster was an Account Specialist and Customer Service Representative at Allstate Insurance Company. In these positions, she handled a variety of functions supporting internal and external customers. She gained extensive experience in call center activities and interacting with customers. It was here where she honed her personal skills in communications, attentiveness, and caring with clients during times of high stress and tragedies. It became evident during these times that Bernice had a passion for helping others.
As her two children grew older and were approaching high school, Bernice began to develop a strong interest in college preparation and scholarship opportunities. During this time, when her children were pursuing college admission and scholarships, Bernice and her husband, Ty, achieved great success in both of these processes. Their children were accepted into sixteen prestigious universities, and they were offered over $2 million dollars in undergraduate scholarship offers. Their two children had amassed numerous full ride scholarships and were able to attend college debt-free! As a result, Bernice and her husband did not have to pay for college!
From these successful experiences of preparing their children through the college processes, the extensive research of college and of the advanced scholarship searches, Bernice developed a passion for helping others benefit from her great success. Her passion is to utilize the lessons she learned through her success and experience to advise other parents and students in specific preparation strategies and market their children for success in the college process and in achieving scholarship awards. From this concept, Bernice Feaster became “The Scholar Mom” and then officially established a new aspiring business, The Scholar Mom LLC in early 2013.
