The benefits of an independent college counselor

Working with Ann during a time that is fraught with so much external pressure was very valuable to us. She understands the process, has lots of experience and is able to convey hopeful optimism, balanced with realism. She kept our son accountable and on track during the entire application process, and she served as a calming resource for us all. We highly recommend Ann!
