“When my husband, our daughter and I first met with Katherine, we were impressed by her knowledge of the field, but even more struck by her connection with our daughter and interest in her life — past, present, and future. I was surprised how open our daughter was with Katherine; she clearly felt comfortable enough to be completely honest. Our daughter has had the benefit of getting to know a fun “gap year expert”, who has a wealth of information and good ideas pertaining to her exact stage of life. She considers Katherine a gift, and so do we.”

“Katherine was super helpful in figuring out what I wanted my time off before college to look like, and what nature of work I was interested in investing my time. I really appreciated her desire to understand my personal ambitions, and help structure my time off to meet my goals.”

“Taking a Gap Year isn’t something I thought of right away. But as I talked to other kids from my high school who took a year off, I started to realize it made a lot of sense for me. Katherine helped me structure my time off, but the most important comment I want to make is how this time made me a different person. I feel so much more lucky, and am not taking anything for granted. I started college with fresh perspective, lots of energy and ideas, and I’m pretty sure I will do better academically because of my experience!”
