"Jill is a trusted advisor with proven results. Her knowledge, skills, patience, and dedication have been my family's strongest tools during the difficult process of college planning. She has helped us to look at colleges for our son not just as ‘where can he get in’ but more importantly as ‘what is the right school'- identifying where he can academically and socially succeed. Additionally, Jill has been a great resource for our son, interacting with him through all steps of the process. Working with Jill has been like having a college expert live in my house!!" -K.S.
"Jill has been an invaluable resource and partner in our college preparation process. She has helped us navigate the day-to-day tasks while keeping an eye on our longer-term objectives and timeline. Most importantly, Jill understands that regardless of statistics and test scores, what really matters is that indescribable “fit” for the prospective college student. She has been our in-house researcher, our voice of reason and reality, our safety net, and my daughter’s biggest supporter.
