"Amy paid attention to my sons' strengths and preferences. She offered constructive guidance and kept them on track to help them through the grueling progress. My sons were ecstatic with their college choices, largely in part to her amazing insight. I would strongly recommend her to make your family's journey smooth and seamless."
