Kate is an intelligent, warm and engaged higher education professional. As her peer in a college advising center, I saw Kate establish meaningful relationships with students, leverage the insights gained and provide top-notch guidance that best suited the student’s immediate and long term needs. I think very highly of Kate and recommend her to any family/student seeking assistance in finding schools, programs, and knowledgable guidance to get the most out of a student’s college career.

College selection can be such an exciting yet stressful process. Kate was there for us the entire time and helped coach us through it. As a parent, I felt comfort in providing my daughter with a knowledgeable and unbiased confidant. Through Kate’s advice, I feel my daughter was able to select the college best suited for her and had her think about things we may not have considered. I would highly recommend Kate to assist in your college search.
