ABOUT TRUE COMPASS
True Compass utilizes The Highlands Ability Battery, which is the gold standard for objectively identifying natural abilities and talents. Most surveys and assessments are subjective rather than objective; this means that you must answer questions about yourself rather than having a test that provides answers for you. The Highlands Ability Battery is a state-of-the-art assessment tool that delivers an objective test of nineteen separate abilities, each measured by a time-tested worksample. The results of your Highlands assessment will be priceless when it comes to overall life satisfaction and direction. True Compass recognized the need and demand for this service in the Wichita area. We want to save families time and money as they no longer have to travel out of state to cities such as Dallas or Chicago to receive this valuable service.
The process includes:
- Three-hour online assessment, which is divided into 18 timed work-sample segments, that can be completed in one sitting or spaced out according to your time availability.
- Two-hour follow-up consultation with a True Compass consultant to review your assessment results and set forth clear goals as well as action steps
- Comprehensive reports that explain the battery results and gives you lifetime access to an information-rich database of educational career matches that connect with your abilities.

For 20 years, I have worked with children and their families in educational and clinical settings. As a Speech-Language Pathologist, I have evaluated the communication skills of children, interpreted the results and guided their teachers and parents through treatment strategies.
I have four children, Luke, Drew, Laine, and Cameron. As my children began their search for a college major and career, we sought out aptitude testing and found it invaluable. I saw the need for this service in our area and began my journey to develop the best process to guide others to learn about their own strengths and abilities. I am passionate about helping others learn more about themselves, and using that information to create a life they love.
