“Melinda Giampietro was absolutely what our daughter needed to inspire her and help her to see all the possibilities that were available to her. Melinda took away all the intimidation of post secondary education and helped to create a strategy to put our daughter’s plans in motion. From the first meeting I noticed a change in our daughter, she no longer seemed to be so “stressed out” by the future and was actually looking forward to it! Melinda is now working with our son, helping him to choose courses for grade twelve that will fall in line with his future plans. I can not think of a more valuable and supportive program than Options Solutions. Melinda has an absolute gift for working with young adults, I only wish we knew about her sooner!”
