My process

I like to spend time at the beginning getting to know the client's background, passions, and goals. Then we can create a plan for how to move forward and best accomplish those goals together. I find it helpful if the client and I can communicate ahead of time in order to make the session as productive as possible.

“Great and helpful feedback!"

Ryoma S.

“I could immediately tell a great deal of thought was put into reviewing my work. Lori's feedback was more thorough and specific than I could've anticipated, and I genuinely feel like I now won't be needing any additional help. "

Sara N.

“Wow, this review was extremely helpful. I actually scheduled an advising session as I made changes that addressed the points you left in your feedback. I now have a more precise understanding of the essay's takeaway message with your help. I look forward to hearing what you think in tomorrow's session! Thank you!"
