A few words from our clients
"I just wanted to reach out and say thank you, Mrs. Sams. Thank you for all you have done and thank you for caring. You have done so much to guide my family through this entire process. Who knew that athletic recruiting would be so overwhelming? Your advice, optimism, and gentle cajoling have made all the difference. It took awhile but now I have found the perfect home."
“Jeanie, you did exactly what you told us you would: you made our family dinners and time together enjoyable! Because of your knowledge and guidance and availability, you kept our son on track, at ease, and feeling positive, and we never had to worry about whether or not the work was getting done, or if it was getting done well. Thank you so much! We would not have wanted to go through this without you.”
“As a high schooler, I found that going through the college application process with Nelie was stimulating, entertaining, and simply fun. Reflecting on the experience now as an adult who could not have been happier with my choice of college and the opportunities it provided me, I realize that Nelie provides the perfect combination of guidance based on her many years of experience in the field, sensitivity to the student and family’s particular needs and goals, and a sense of humor that make discussions about standardized tests and personal statements as riveting as such conversations could possibly be.”
