Being the parent of a Junior student is stressful, especially when nothing you, as a parent say, is ever good enough or exactly right. Eva gave my daughter vision, encouragement and focus to help determine exactly what it was she was looking for in a college. In addition to being a listening ear, she guided my daughter in her college exploration and determined which colleges would be most compatible with her personality, student ability and individual goals. Her help was immeasurable and I would recommend her highly. My daughter has been accepted to her first choice college and I credit Eva for having the patience and experience I lacked as a first-time college parent. I can't thank her enough for your guidance.
