Testimonials

Liz helped us a lot with the college selection and application process. She identified several schools we had not heard of that were promising matches for our daughter. Liz provided detailed information and clear feedback in a way that was very supportive. She gave very workable advice on our daughter's essays. Working with Liz gave our family a boost in the right direction! I would strongly recommend working with Liz on this process.
