“Mara is a wonderful guidance counselor.  From brain storming, choosing the right colleges to apply, planning, strategizing, organizing and navigating the application process, Mara was thorough, knowledgeable and extremely supportive. Although college application process was stressful, meetings with Mara were always pleasant. Everyone would feel calm, relaxed and confident coming out of it!  She worked diligently to guide both our children every step of the way to reach their goals successfully.  Thank you, Mara!”
