Praise from Parents and Educators

“The students I work with are often confused and anxious about their future. I met Lisa at an industry conference and her coaching is the single, most important tool I use for college planning. It frees the mind to concentrate on other, important aspects. I have 0 students who graduated college and didn’t know what to do. 100% working in at least a related job.”

— George Gately, Succeed Where It Count & College Counts America

“My daughter was anxious and conflicted over her college major, and given that I am a school counselor, I know how it helps for kids to hear from folks other than mom. We worked with Lisa and the conversation changed the future for Emma. She became validated, free, excited and ready to go! She’s now graduating college and couldn’t be happier!”

— Vicki Weisbrod, Mom and School Counselor

“We were unsure how to advise our daughter and felt anxious for her as she lacked self-confidence to make decisions. The insight we gained with Lisa’s coaching was worth every penny. My daughter is now much more confident in her abilities and more at peace as she makes her college decision and picks a major.”

— Melanie Staudt

“We have known Lisa for a long time and have benefitted from her expert advice for years. Hence saving me a lot of sleepless nights and gray hairs in the process. Moral of the story? Talk to Lisa early. I promise it will pay off.”

— Joanne Fultz
