What are clients saying?

"I have had the distinct pleasure of being taught and mentored by Laura Summers during my graduate program at the University of Colorado, Denver. Laura has a unique ability to connect with students of all ages and backgrounds through her passion for research, technical suaveness, dedication to teaching, and sincere concern for her students. Her approachability and positive attitude, combined with her unbridled enthusiasm for research, made her one of the most beloved and student recommended (word of mouth) professors in our program. I now work as a researcher in Berkeley, California, but I have continued to benefit professionally from her advice and support over the last several years. I recommend Laura without reservation and truly feel privileged to have been inspired and shaped by her."
