"Shondra exceeded our expectations as a college mentor and advisor. Our daughter had no idea what school or even states she wanted to explore. Shondra was great helping tease out her priorities and likes, helping her zero in on a handful of schools. Our daughter wasn’t sure about majors either, Shondra was great at helping her prioritize her likes. She was such an asset for editing the essays too. I can’t say enough great things about her. We are going to work with her again when our son is getting ready for college."
