What We Do
Student-athlete at Bucknell University
The [recruiting] process definitely had its ups and downs and [Maura’s] advice and expertise made all of this possible! I cannot fully express how thankful I am for all that [Maura] has done for me this year!

Junior year is jam-packed with the pressure of academic demands, college testing, erg scores, and rowing. A handful of hour-long conversations with Gail around our dining room table helped our daughter plan out the college search into manageable pieces, to see herself in context with other rowers and applicants, and to narrow in on what she wanted from a college, a rowing coach, and rowing program. That changed considerably over the year+ that she worked with Gail. Having an experienced, non-parent voice to listen to and counsel our daughter through this undertaking was invaluable. Gail was available to us by phone and email throughout the process. Gail stuck with us until we had a final decision in the regular decision round. Can’t say enough about how helpful this was.

Our family has used Rower’s Edge for both of our rowers with great success. Our children have very different personalities, with different strengths and weaknesses as recruits. Maura helped us navigate the whole process with both of them successfully. The benefits of having someone that was so familiar with the process and the different schools was immeasurable and helped to alleviate much of our anxiety along the way. Our children appreciated having someone who could let them know what to expect, what to look for and how to handle conversations and visits with coaches. My husband and I appreciated having someone who was so knowledgeable about the recruiting process and could offer us and both our son and daughter a credible adult perspective. Rower’s Edge helped both of them achieve successful outcomes and reduced much of our tension, thereby keeping peace and harmony in our household during a very exciting but potentially stressful time.
