CEO & Founder
The New York Times called Jill an “expert” for summer. That’s because she takes the time to understand the personality and needs of each individual family and child — and tailors her recommendations accordingly. Her objective guidance helps you find the solution that’s just right.
Jill Tipograph, CEO & founder of Everything Summer & Beyond, LLC, and co-founder of Early Stage Careers, LLC, is the nationally recognized youth expert and educational consultant who guides families worldwide through the summer planning and enrichment process (a 20+ year industry veteran).

Everything Summer removes the stress and overwhelming nature of summer planning by helping teens with pre-college direction and transition, and college students with career planning.
