“Lynn walked me through each step and was patient in not only helping me, but taking the time to explain everything. Once I finally received my financial aid package and was disappointed in the amount I received, Lynn helped me put together an appeal letter that eventually got me more financial aid, ensuring that I’d be able to afford continuing my education.”
– Angela D.

About Lynn Verrilli

Founder of Advanced College Funding Solutions
Lynn Verrilli

My career began in business development working with three major corporations. After twenty plus years, I decided it was time for a career change. I accepted a lead position in my parents’ Investment Advisory Firm as a Registered Investment Advisor. Upon their retirement, I formed an Investment Advisory Firm, Affinity Financial Solutions, LLC to continue on in the field of investment and retirement planning.

While assisting numerous clients with their investment and retirement goals, I found that a major concern for many parents was determining the method they would use to pay for college and still effectively address other major planning issues like retirement funding. Also, I had watched as my five sisters, parents of nine boys and two girls, struggled with the amount of labor and research the college planning process entails.  This enabled me to witness a largely unfulfilled demand for assistance in navigating the course of planning for college admission. I can understand how overwhelming it can be for parents, who wish to secure their child’s opportunity for a higher education, while lacking the knowledge of where to start.

These facts became the catalyst for launching Advanced College Funding Solutions (ACFS) years ago. My knowledge and work experience in the finance industry coupled with my knowledge of college planning and funding has succeeded in relieving much stress for parents and students. I am an experienced College Planning Specialist, a member of the National Association of College Funding Advisors and The College Planning Network.

Our main goal is to alleviate the associated stress and to help families achieve educational goals, financial security, and peace of mind.

“Lynn at Advanced College Funding Solutions is quite knowledgeable and has given excellent guidance from the start. Navigating the college process for the first time was overwhelming and she made it easier; providing information and support each time we asked.”
– Amy G.
