Lieutenant Colonel, U.S. Army (Retired) Founder & President of Educational Achievement Services, Inc.
Born and raised along the border in a small barrio in Laredo, Texas, Consuelo Kickbusch is all too familiar with the challenges of poverty, discrimination and illiteracy. Although she grew up without material wealth, she was taught by her immigrant parents that she was rich in culture, tradition, values and faith.
The values she learned as a child were reinforced throughout her career in the U.S. military. After graduating from Hardin Simmons University, Consuelo entered the U.S. Army as an officer and served for two decades. During that time, she broke barriers and set records in the military where she became the highest-ranking Hispanic woman in the Combat Support Field of the U.S. Army. When the opportunity to assume a command post arose, LTC Castillo Kickbusch shocked the military by deciding to retire. She chose to honor her mother's dying wish to get back to her roots and become a community leader. In 1996, Consuelo Castillo Kickbusch retired from the military and dedicated her time to operating Educational Achievement Services, Inc. and fulfilling her mission of preparing tomorrow's leaders today.
Today, Consuelo tells her story to people of all ages and creeds. She is doing exactly what she preaches…living a legacy. Because of her strong dedication to saving the youth of America living under similar circumstances as she did as a child, Consuelo continues to share her message with young people across the country and their parents. In addition, she reaches audiences in the corporate, professional, and multi-cultural markets. She has also worked with many non-profit organizations, community-service oriented companies, and programs.
In addition to being an advocate for education, Consuelo serves as a featured motivational speaker with corporations and government agencies to develop the leadership and peak performance of their employees. She firmly believes that businesses and corporations need strong leaders and a talented, diverse workforce in order to compete successfully in the global marketplace.
Consuelo’s dedication to the youth of America and her amazing talent at motivational speaking has garnered her numerous awards and citations from educational institutions, government agencies, professional organizations, as well as the national media. Recently, she was awarded the Legacy Award from Working Mother’s Magazine, the Brillante Award for Entrepreneur Excellence from the National Society of Hispanic MBA’s, and the prestigious Hispanic Heritage Foundation Award for Leadership.
