Our Team

SES is based in Carmel, NY; but our backyard reaches out to Westchester, Putnam, and Dutchess Counties in New York and Fairfield County in Connecticut.

As an Educational Advisor for a college planning service center that counsels students nation-wide, Jeff advises 200+ students and their parents annually from California, Colorado, Oregon, and Texas in the West; to Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia in the Southeast; to Minnesota, Ohio, Michigan, and Illinois in the Midwest; to New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, Maine, and Massachusetts in the Northeast. We work with distant students remotely via a combination of video conferences, screen sharing sessions, and phone conversations.
