“I recently had a very hectic time between my work schedule, children and so many other things that life throws at you. In the midst of this chaos, I had one very large application that I had to complete. I never found the time to even read the instructions, let alone complete the application. And the mounds of supporting documentation required just made me put off dealing with it even more.
Ellen was invaluable. She calmly worked with me step by step so that I could gather all the necessary information and finish my application. There were several letters I needed to write including timelines, facts, lots of details that were difficult for me to put into a concise, cohesive letter. Ellen helped me to think in a more organized way about the facts and information so what I presented was clear and to the point.
When I was overwhelmed, she would help me break things up into manageable tasks that were easy to tackle. Her attention to detail made me feel confident that everything I sent out was in the best order possible.
She was always encouraging and regularly we checked in so I didn’t lose my motivation. She made a very painful process a lot less so. More importantly, as a result of working with her, I was able to submit my completed application, a goal I was not able to accomplish on my own.”
