“Working with you has helped me to pinpoint the message I want to send to colleges. You’ve also helped me refine my writing style so that I convey ideas strongly and clearly. Your feedback was always thoughtful, detailed and very helpful. Thank you so much for everything!"

We are so appreciative of Heather’s wonderful, easy, and warm manner of engagement. She made what can be a daunting college application/essay process very manageable and doable. Her professionalism and approachability are second to none!
-with gratitude, the Morimoto family
Thank you so much for all your help with my daughter! You were definitely a key to her successful applications.
My son truly thoroughly enjoyed working with you and felt that your input was invaluable!
We could not have been happier with Heather's services. Her edits and suggestions were always thoughtful and on point while respecting my son's unique point of view and voice. Highly recommended!
Again, we want to thank you for your work with our daughter on the essay portions of her applications. I think the very positive response she got from her list of colleges reflects that her essays conveyed clearly who she is and what she can contribute to their college community.
It's really important to be comfortable with the person that you're working with because all the information is personal. After I met Heather and shared parts of my personality, we maintained a friendly and trusting relationship to make the process effective. Her second perspective is very valuable since it's similar to an admissions officer, except you use the feedback before applying.
Heather radiated kindness and calm as she helped my daughter and her friends begin the process of thinking about college essays. She really knows how to connect with high schoolers and her advice and tips were very helpful.
