In the spring of 2014, college admissions expert Christina Wright decided to use her wealth of knowledge to help Milwaukee’s high school students make sense of the college search and application process--she opened College Right, a boutique college counseling business with services tailored to fit each individual student. College Right helps Milwaukee’s high school students become savvy college shoppers, empowering them to take control of their own application process. College Right takes pride in making the college application process stress-free and even a little bit fun for each student. “There are over 4000 colleges and universities in the United States and there’s a great fit out there for every student,” says Wright. “Many families are daunted by the college application process; they aren’t sure where to begin and it becomes overwhelming. I’m here to alleviate the stress surrounding this process and to even make it enjoyable.” Wright has nearly 10 years of experience in the college admissions industry. After graduating from college in 2003, she worked as an admissions counselor at SUNY Maritime College and, from 2005 to 2007, she worked as an independent college counselor at a national college counseling firm helping over 200 high school students with the college application and essay writing process. In 2007, she moved to the other side of the desk to work as an admissions counselor at Marquette University. Most recently, she has served on the Due West Education Council helping Chinese high school students with their college essays as an editor. Wright graduated from Columbia University where she was a captain of the women’s varsity swim team as well as a student worker in the admissions office. She holds two graduate degrees from Marquette University, an MA in Political Science and a Graduate Certificate in Digital Storytelling.

With the success of the Limited Edition "Sugar Skull" mugs made last year, Local First Milwaukee member, Colectivo Coffee, commissioned Jean's Clay Studio to make a Spring edition with a new theme.
The new floral design has a latin theme similar to the sugar skull mugs. The flower is an elongated version of the eye from the skull design with added scrollwork flair. The same four different base colors were used: black, "Colectivo Blue", red, and white to match the prior edition.
All the mugs were made exclusively by Jean on the pottery wheel and decorated with a carving technique called "sgraffito". No molds, stamps, stencils or decals are used. These one-of-a-kind mugs are individually handmade to reflect the unique spirit of Colectivo Coffee Roasters.
