The biggest issue was not actually filling out the applications and writing the essays – it was the anxiety of having this overwhelming process ahead of us. Joan brought a new kind of confidence that enabled us to get past my agonizing and just get it all done. From the first moment we entered her office, we felt so welcome and comfortable, and her brisk and personable nature made the whole college application process so much more manageable and far less stressful. With her approach, success is unavoidable – We could not have done it without her!
