Christian Labrador

Lead Consultant, Golf 

Christian Labrador is the lead consultant and founder of Non Finis Consulting. He started the company because he vividly remembered the stress and pain caused by college admissions and wants to relieve that stress from others.

Through working with students, he knows how to find students' passions, align those passions with their college interests, and locate schools that best fit the student to ensure growth, success, and happiness. 

Also, while at Brown University, he reflected upon the added difficulty of the college recruiting process, despite being recruited as a golfer.
