“Jane was the ideal person to guide our son through the college application process. She worked directly with him, which gave us that peace of mind that we could step back. Her insights prompted our son to fine-tune his essay for his first choice school, Emerson College. We were thrilled that Emerson offered him a spot in the honors program, where he is a freshman today! Jane’s expertise played a big role in that success.”

Dawn C, parent
