“I want to thank Katherine for helping Gina with her college planning and application process. As a business owner I don’t have a lot of time so I need to hire professionals. It lifted quite a burden off of my shoulders to be able to hire a team who already knew the ropes and who could identify where to apply and just as importantly, which places that were not a “good fit” for my daughter, Gina. Katherine helped Gina every step of the way, and she was able to secure merit aid to 7 colleges, which greatly expanded her college choices. Gina is a Freshman now and she is happy and confident that she chose the correct school. This is probably the best money I have ever spent as a parent. Thank you so much for your help.”

Dear Katherine, I am not sure how we can ever thank you for all of your time and patience that you shared with such care with Amy. Having that final count down of ‘Amy at 5PM you will pick a college,’ was a terrific idea and I am currently using that technique in other areas of her life.”

Hi Katherine, Heather had a great trip to Boston this week, with orientation at Northeastern and several days of skating with her new team. So far everything is looking great, and we wanted to thank you especially for helping Heather to achieve her objectives of finding a great school where she will feel at home and also the opportunity to keep skating competitively. I know this wasn’t easy, but all the work the two of you did really paid off in the end. I guess the take home message is that if you can define what you want, you can get there.”

“Dear Katherine, Thank you so much for everything you did for me during my college search. I truly couldn’t have done it without you. You were extremely helpful through the entire journey and I cannot thank you enough. I will definitely keep in touch! Thanks again for everything.”

“Katherine worked with both my daughters, as they navigated through the college application process. My oldest daughter will be a junior at the University of San Diego, and my youngest just graduated from high school and will attend Loyola Marymount University in the fall. It was great to have Katherine helping them during a challenging and often exhausting process. What I appreciate about Katherine is her ability to work with different kids; she adjusts to the needs of each individual and caters to their strengths and supports their weaknesses. Senior year is filled with demands and destractions, but Katherine is able to keep her students on task and focused. She helped my girls prioritize and meet deadlines. If you asked them about Katherine, I think they would agree that the best part was her ability to help them explore interests and eventually narrow down schools that met their criteria and excited them. For me, the best part about having Katherine in our corner was that I NEVER EVER had to nag my kids about the college process. Katherine did it all. She kept them on track and checked in with them regularly. Her work allowed more breathing room between me and my girls, which is worth more than money can buy!”

“I felt my time with Katherine was extremely valuable and beneficial for my journey to college. She was very knowledgeable about the application process, and it was reassuring to have someone who was able to easily answer all of my questions. She put me at ease several times throughout my senior year, whether I was stressed editing another draft of my Common App essay, or I felt the pressure of deadlines rapidly approaching, Katherine was always able to guide me. Katherine was a mentor and a friend to me my senior year, as well as my college counselor, and she made me feel confident and excited about the opportunities that I received. She was understanding, empathic, and continued to help me after acceptances and check in throughout my freshman year of college. I cannot say enough positives about all that Katherine has done for me, and I am grateful to have had her as my college counselor my junior and senior year.”

“For me, working with Katherine was essential to the college application process. I was filled with anxieties and questions my junior year around where I wanted to apply, what I wanted to do, how to even apply and write college essays, and I just had no idea what was out there and how to approach this process. Katherine not only helped me with every step of the process, but helped me get excited about the possibilities I now had at my disposal. Through her help, I was able to identify my strengths and passions, which not only helped me write my essays, but helped me understand myself better as a person. I thoroughly enjoyed my time working with Katherine and thanks to her help I am happily attending the perfect school for me!”

“Katherine, Thanks for assisting Makenzie in her search. I just got back from moving her in at Knox and it was very exciting! My youngest has 7 years, but I hope to use your services at that time to help with her search! Thanks again for all the great advice and support throughout this process.”

Shae, Mom of a Student at Knox College

Having Katherine assist me throughout the college application process was a massive help, as I would have never had as clear a path through as she helped me create. From the first step of choosing potential colleges to crafting essays that showed who I was, I felt I was able to gain confidence about where I wanted to go and what to study, where I was originally uncertain. There were so many opportunities and deadlines I would have missed or rushed otherwise, and having someone to keep me on track removed so much stress from an intimidating process.”

If you are stressing and lost on what to do for college, you’re in the right place. Katherine was a lifesaver for me! I met her at the beginning of my Junior year of high school having no idea where I wanted to go to school and what options were available. From beginning to end, she makes this process very simple for you if you are willing to put in the work. She will guide you on what to do and how to do it. If you put in one hour before every meeting the process is super simple and becomes almost stress free. The most help you get from Katherine is with the college essays, which is the most important part of any application. That will make or break a student getting into school. She is very professional and knows exactly what schools are looking for in an essay. She will sit down and brainstorm with you until there is a solid essay to hand in. Katherine is very well informed and has years of experience doing this. She knows the process like the back of her hand. I honestly don’t think I could have done it without her. She was a saving grace for me in this process.
