"Dr. Savant helped me set my goals toward my progress, and also she kept me focused by decreasing my writing anxiety. Dr. Savant is an excellent motivator, compassionate and knowledgeable. She is very passionate about what she is doing. I was able to overcome academic and personal setbacks for the past years. I completed my dissertation last month, and my graduation is for August this year. I strongly recommend her services; she made me believe that I could do it. Thank Dr. Savant for your encouragement, kindness, and support, you helped me reached the finish line. It is hard to believe that I am "Dr. Cadet" now! Dr. Savant, many thanks from the bottom of my heart. You are my coach for life."
Myriam Cadet, 2017
  

"Dr. Savant's acumen surrounding dissertations is valuable, and she provides utmost care in making sure that her students are acutely aware of research needed to substantiate statements. Her enthusiasm for learning, developing and researching is a breath of fresh air, and she exhibits the stamina needed to get anyone through the dissertation writing process."
—S. Zuker
 

I am completing my doctorate in clinical psychology, and I was speaking with a colleague about my frustration with my dissertation process. My colleague recommended Dr. Savant as an editor. I had not previously used an editor and was at a level of frustration with my dissertation that I was not making any progress. I contracted with Dr. Savant, and the editing was completed prior to stated completion time and with a meticulous level of attention to detail. Dr. Savant's comments gave me the focus to know where to invest my time and energy in the dissertation and helped me to continue my progress which had been previously stagnated. I would highly recommend Dr. Savant for doctoral editing services, and in retrospect, I wish that I had started using her services earlier in my educational process as I feel that it would have saved hundreds of hours of frustration with writing.

Dr. Savant was a true professional handling my career needs. I was in professional transition and needed to update my resume, executive summary and LinkedIn profile. Dr. Savant understood my career objectives and professional aspirations. Dr. Savant swiftly gathered all my information and discussed with me my objectives and had my professional representation updated in a very timely matter. After two weeks of working with Dr. Savant, I was made an offer, and I accepted.  Dr. Savant understands all the necessary processes of career transitions, reemployment, and how to best represent candidates to employers.  I am thankful and grateful her career coach services."
—Jon Mastel, 2017

 

"My email serves as my testimony as to how and why your resume services benefited me during my employment search.  First, I have applied for several positions and their resume review of my submission has been "excellent resume" detailing your qualifications.  Next, it has become clear to me that my skills and abilities are clearly matched with those sought by the organizations I have applied to for employment.  Before, I missed that mark and often received standard replies that another candidate was selected over me.  It is the point, and your services accurately match the skills and abilities that employers seek in applications."
—A. Robinson, 2017

 

"I saw Nakita for career counseling recently, unsure of what to expect. Nakita was quick to help me define my goals and see a track record of my strengths. She was critical in helping me determine a path for my future. What impressed me most during our sessions was her nimble, open mind and ability tap into her therapeutic background to give me the bigger picture. She's a gem, and I'd recommend her to anyone looking for solid guidance."
—Kristie A.

 

"I contacted Dr. Savant to help polish my resume and executive summary. As a business owner, I had not submitted job applications for a number of years. Dr. Savant provided prompt, economical and professional help, giving what I had started, a very necessary objective "eye." She helped to prioritize my best to present my skills, strengths, and experience by first understanding who I was, by identifying my personal values. Now I have a resume and executive summary that I believe in, and that will catch the attention of employers!"
