Testimonials

We were overwhelmed by the college application process and having a hard time communicating with our son about all the necessary steps. Liz immediately took time to get to know Myles better, and started giving him valuable guidance that he took to heart. Liz has made herself available throughout the process, and communicated regularly via email; Myles is now well on his way to completing his applications! It has been wonderful to have a trusted "non-parent" adult involved in the process.
