“Linda gave my daughter the push she really needed to get moving down the path of applying to college. Getting Linda involved provided guidance with breaking the process down into bite size pieces by creating timelines and a methodological process to encourage her to be more accountable. Having her lead us through the process decreased the tension in our house a thousand percent! Thank you, it’s been a terrific experience for our family.”
