About Us

Welcome to Chase the Write Dream! I’m Tori and I’m so happy you’re here!

It wasn’t long ago that I was figuring out what the heck I wanted to do with my life. I enrolled in college at the ripe age of 17 and pretty much learned everything by myself.

Fast forward to the present, I now hold a bachelor’s degree in human services and a master’s degree in psychology. I’ve spent the past ten years learning the ins and outs of the college and young adult years – I’m talking admissions, financial aid, campus life, preparing for a career, job hunting, and more!

My education and experience have allowed me to fill the roles of a life coach, educational mentor, and now a blogger!

My ultimate passion is to help college students and twentysomethings find their place in the world. So whether you are trying to figure out how to make good grades in college or get your adult life started on the right foot, there’s something here for you!

I hope you’re as excited for this journey as I am! Should you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email me at hello@chasethewritedream.com.

I look forward to seeing you around! 🙂

    This is so amazing. As a college sophomore about to finish the year, I have finally realized and accepted that I am not and haven’t been the best student. I will be entering into my junior year with a lower gpa than I wanted. Seeing your website is so encouraging, I am actually excited to turn things around and make a difference for my education and myself. Thank you for having a passion to help!!!

    God bless you,

    Hey Tori! I found your site by finding other writers who also have a passion for helping out college & twentysomethings. Surprisingly, it’s been quite difficult! Just wanted to pop in and say I love your blog and it’s mission. I especially love your statement, “My ultimate passion is to help college students and twentysomethings find their place in the world” because that is exactly what I am also passionate about, but didn’t have the words for it. Anyway, thank you so much for sharing your story! Hope to get in touch someday!
