What My Clients Have to Say
Relationships are central to Trish Priest. She initiates and nurtures relationships at every level of the counseling process. As an active member of the college admissions community, and with her professional experience as a director of admissions and a secondary school college counselor, Trish has a strong network of relationships and resources to support students and their families as they distill the values that will guide the college search and application process. Trish is well-versed in the college admissions process, yet her true value is knowledge of how to find the right "fit". Trish asked the right questions and encouraged our daughter to identify and prioritize what she wanted and needed in a post-secondary institution. Using this information, Trish cultivated a list of target schools and helped our daughter navigate the application process. This allowed us, her parents, to step away from the driver's seat and hand the wheel to our daughter.
