"Three years ago, we started looking for a College Advisor before our oldest child graduated from eighth grade. We just wanted someone to tell us ‘how it works.’ In Elizabeth, we found a college expert who genuinely cares about the success and well-being of our daughter.
Initially, Elizabeth met with the three of us to explain college entrance requirements and what to strive for over the high school years, in order to maximize our daughter’s college opportunities. After each semester, Elizabeth was available to help her decide which classes to take, what activities to keep or quit, and how to make truly informed decisions. Elizabeth went on to work with our family until our daughter was admitted to her first choice school, Arizona State University, Honors College, with a nice scholarship!"

"Elizabeth, the information you provided at last evening’s session was very helpful. You have provided us with a roadmap for high school, and for that we thank you! We will keep in touch for advice as our child progresses through her high school years."

"Elizabeth, as a family, we are so grateful to you for helping Henry! I am completely convinced that there is no way that he would have ever ended up at the University of Miami if it had not been for you. To start, none of us had ever heard of it, and then there was the distance…but in the end, this school has been nothing short of fantastic and turned out to be the best fit EVER.
It was a great suggestion and clearly you heard everything that he said he wanted in a campus. He is really thriving and has already decided to stay an extra year so that he can complete his Master’s at the end of 5 years. He made it into the amazing Miami Commitment Program and has a wonderful part time job and terrific advisors in about every category one could think of.
Thank you again for everything! Because of you Henry is thriving at college in ways that Mike and I could have never imagined."

"Elizabeth sets a schedule for all of her students and has them prepared for the application process well before deadlines. My son was already ahead of the game, having written drafts of college essays in the summer before his senior year.
Another valuable part of Elizabeth’s service is her editing and guidance through the writing of each and every essay. As a well-educated parent, I found Elizabeth’s help to be invaluable as she has so much experience and knowledge about the college application process. Communicating with her, either via email or phone, was very easy and I always felt that she had my son’s college goals and desires as her top priority."

"Elizabeth, I got my official acceptance letter to Stanford as well as the chance to go there to meet my future academic advisor and the whole synchronized swimming team. I am very excited to be a part if such an elite team of girls, while also studying at one if the top schools in the country. I wanted to say I am very thankful for all the help you were able to give me throughout this long process. It was tough but I am grateful that you were there to help me through it all. You were so incredibly supportive and I am forever grateful!"

"We came to Elizabeth late in the senior year, and I'm so grateful for everything that you've done for Eric. You have done all you said you would and more! He followed your list of steps to a 'T', and because of this he got into UCSB speaks, which speaks volumes about your expertise and knowledge. We are 100% satisfied and I have recommended you to other parents. You’re an amazing person and such a supportive woman. We’re truly blessed to have been able to work with you. I'm looking forward to the next 4 years as we watch Eric grow. We’ll continue to retain you for help getting into med or grad school."

“The greatest reward is to know that you have actually affected a young person’s life in a positive way. This is the reason I started working in education and continues to be the source of my boundless motivation and energy.”
