Susana’s guidance was invaluable. She asked pertinent questions to help guide our daughter in her school selection, she provided useful tools to assist in our analysis, and she anticipated our needs and was always prepared with articles, data and other materials to address them. Susana added significant value at both a high strategic level and the more precise tactical level. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, and I would wholeheartedly recommend her services to others.

I am very pleased at the direction and guidance she has given us and our son in preparing to select, apply and eventually choose higher education. She knows him well but continues to ask incisive questions, relating what she learns to the ever-changing landscape. I have every confidence that Susana is expert on this subject, because it’s obvious she does the work, and she cares deeply about education and getting the right “fit” for my son’s future.
