Loretta Summers

Managing Partner & Senior Consultant

Loretta believes that knowledge is power, serving as the foundation for motivating and enlightening her clients during their college selection journey. Although the admissions process can be challenging and at times frustrating, Loretta is passionate about guiding students through this period of evolving self-awareness and growth as they position themselves to make the first major decision in their young lives.

As a co-owner of College Bound Consulting, Loretta combines the business skills developed in her previous career with her commitment to helping young people achieve their dreams. Prior to joining College Bound Consulting in 2013, Loretta spent thirty years in financial services, most recently as a Managing Director at Deutsche Bank, where she enjoyed mentoring junior colleagues, now the focal point of her college counseling practice. She brings her experience in markets and industries to college admissions, researching and interpreting trends to incorporate in the customized solutions developed for her clients.

After over twenty years in Hinsdale, Loretta moved to Chicago to enjoy all city life has to offer. She is a graduate of Boston College and a Professional Member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA). When Loretta is not busy guiding her clients, she enjoys skiing, golf, cuisine, and travel — especially to college campuses.

As a child, Loretta's family straddled the Atlantic, living in both Italy and the US. In fact her first words were in Italian! Early on, she recognized the value of communicating with people in their native languages, treasuring to this day, her bilingual heritage.
