When Doug and Sue opened their college planning practice back in 2009, Sue relished the idea of working with students once again. She had been a schoolteacher when they first married up to the time they had their first daughter. Then she enjoyed raising her two daughters as a stay-at-home mom.
But once a teacher, always a teacher. Over the years she stayed active as a church teacher, girl scout leader, PTA president and even a substitute teacher when the girls were older.
Sue has a passion for working with students as well as the knowledge of what colleges are looking for on applications and in essays. Sue not only successfully guides her students through the admissions process, but she also helps students figure out what they want to do career-wise.
It’s this career guidance combined with her college admissions strategies that not only can save a family a ton of money, but more importantly, reduce the stress and anxiety that is so common during this process.
As Doug tells parents, one of the big benefits of Sue working with their student is simply that, “She’s not you!”
As you’re aware, students listen to other adults much better than their own parents.
When Sue is not working with students, she enjoys crafting projects with inspiration from Pinterest, organizing fellowship events at church, organizing dorm rooms and apartments for her daughters, guiding her daughters into “adulting” as well as getting together with friends to play cards.
