“Kristin’s years of experience, coupled with her student-centered approach, made the college process for both my kids easy and meaningful. Kristin is the gold standard in the college counseling world. Known and admired by many college counseling and admissions colleagues, her connections and deep knowledge of the industry help to alleviate the stress that this process brings to many students and families. Kristin’s focus on “the right fit” allows the student to be the driver of their decision, while ensuring that families are engaged in the college search and well informed of the intricacies of college admissions. From editing essays, to facilitating mock interviews, to answering endless questions about financial aid, Kristin’s constant presence and dedication to students and families is unwavering. My kids and our family are better thanks to Kristin’s guidance, expertise, and support as we navigated the world of higher education. I cannot recommend Kristin and her services enough!”
“We have had the pleasure of working with Kristin during two college application processes. Both of our children are very different academically and in disposition. Kristin was the perfect fit for both of them. Her incredibly calm demeanor, constructive advice and direction, coupled with an optimistic outlook made the process smooth and with minimal stress. She worked hand in hand with our children to create a timeline for staying on task, while keeping us informed as parents. She encourages students to own the process and develops a relationship that enables them to communicate comfortably and directly with her. Her feedback on essay writing was constructive and timely. She helped us create a realistic list of schools and is very well informed about entrance requirements. We recommend Kristin with enthusiasm and without hesitation, and plan to use her for our other two children when the time comes.”
“Coming from a small town, I had no idea how to prepare for college, or what type of college I wanted to go to. It was a scary process but Kristin helped guide me every step of the way. She never told me what to do, but rather sat with me and helped me figure out my goals, my wants and needs, and pros and cons to schools I was considering. She assisted me with finding scholarships and special programs. Kristin is kind, respectful and genuine. With her support, I accomplished one of my biggest goals and was accepted into Medical School.”

“Kristin encouraged our granddaughter to pursue her passion to be a doctor every step of the way from HS to Medical School. She provided so much information, support and encouragement including everything she needed for applications, financial aid and scholarships. She was the best college counselor any of our children or grandchildren ever worked with.”
