“Susan helped us research and evaluate numerous college choices for my oldest daughter. Susan patiently worked with her to sort through the various college options and match them with my daughter’s goals, personality, and academic aptitude, She was excellent at finding a balance between coaching and listening to help arrive at the best fit. Just as important, Susan provided a gentle, knowledgeable, unbiased, and positive approach to a process that can be very difficult. I highly recommend her for anyone seeking assistance with the college application and selection process.”

“Since this was my first child applying to college the process seemed overwhelming. You were able to help my daughter help herself as she completed the applications mostly on her own. You helped break down the application process into smaller parts and encouraged her to set goals and follow deadlines. This was a huge help for me because I had never been through this before and wasn’t sure where to start. Thank you for encouraging her and easing her anxiety.”

“Susan was always ready with support and wisdom. The experience was superb. When I asked my daughter who she wanted to invite to her graduation party, she told me that you (Susan) had the biggest impact on her these past few years.”

You were extremely helpful to us in navigating the process, providing advice and guidance, and working with Tyler to help him stay on track. You became friend and trusted resource for him and we are very grateful. It has been a joy working with you.

Thank you for “painting the college process” for our daughter so that the steps were clear. She enjoyed having you as a sounding board and being so accessible to answer her questions and concerns.

“There is no way I could have done all that stuff and stayed organized without you. Thank you.”
— Mitchell D., Student
“I found that the method of listing pros and cons when making my acceptance decision helped me delineate my thoughts a lot! Just having someone to go over the process with and give advice was a big help.”
— Hannah S., Student
I cannot even begin to explain how helpful you were in my college application process. Without your diligence in guiding and assisting me, I don’t think I would have been accepted to Johns Hopkins in the first place. Thank you so much.
— Zack B. Johns Hopkins University, Class of 2019
