What They Say About Jodi?


"I had interviewed 3 companies for college financial aid advisory. Jodi was professional, concise, and very knowledgeable in the whole process. She was always available for questions. She was equally helpful to my daughter and we simple could have not had a more positive experience with CFAA. I am so grateful for all her expertise and cannot wait to refer my friends about to embark on this process. Thank you, Jodi."


"Jodi Okun is a diamond in the ruff. There was NO way I could have applied for any aid on my own. She is thorough, detail oriented and gets the job done well and quickly. Anyone who gets to work with Jodi is lucky! "


"Without the assistance of Jodi Okun and CFAA, I would not have been able to get my children financial aid. Jodi is thorough and brilliant at what she does. She makes the process easy and seamless. She is non-judgemental and a complete pleasure to work with. "


"Jodi is an angel to the financial aid process. My son has a unique set of circumstances that qualify him for aid, but one must have a mastery of both the federal laws and the private school policies to understand how to unlock the available aid for which he qualifies. Jodi is that person. My son would not have received his generous award were it not for Jodi's understanding of the rules of the road, and her micromanagement of the process."
