My motivational speaking and college-admissions consulting efforts at Savvy Success Unlimited help curious, ambitious leaders, courageous folks, and bold believers gain clarity about their authentic personal brand based on natural abilities, skills, strengths, interests, values, assessments, and/or leadership style, which we leverage to create more insightful people, stronger teams, and better organizations!

During each session, training, or workshop, strategies are shared, developed, and implemented, particularly with the individual AND groups in mind. Clients can apply knowledge gained from SavvyU directly to college applications, their careers, and other important aspects of their lives.  ​

SavvyU's ultimate goal is to help people achieve on their pathway to living their dreams.

About College-Admissions Consultant and Motivational Speaker 

Lorraine Lyman, MS, MA, CPBS

​​​SAVVY SUCCESS Unlimited


As founder and owner, I grew up dreaming of asking questions and telling real stories that highlight the human condition like Oprah Winfrey and Barbara Walters, and I loved conducting business as well as Diahann Carroll or Julia Roberts in their fiercest roles all in efforts to help people live their dreams as they aspire and achieve one goal after another.

Most highly accomplished individuals can pull themselves up by their bootstraps and figure things out, eventually. However, when faced with life's most important career decisions, it's best to hire an expert to help with the finer points of the process, details that are of the utmost importance, and insights that give you an edge when thousands upon thousands of dollars are  on the line.

My early power moves include learning with the best and the brightest at institutions such as the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth and the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science. All of which inform the ways I help others understand that developing their best selves academically and professionally—in concert with utilizing their strengths and natural abilities—will bring them their own unique brand of success.

As a Certified Personal Branding Strategist (CPBS), Certified Digital Branding Strategist (CBDS), and Reach360 Certified Analyst, I love collaborating with individuals and groups! 

With a master's degree in Consciousness and Transformative Studies from John F. Kennedy University, my personal and professional development, leadership training, career coaching, and college-admissions consulting assists people with unique insights that help them achieve their dreams!

Prior to turning my motivational endeavors, problem-solving, management, leadership, and mentoring skills to personal and professional development full-time, I earned master's and bachelor's degrees in Chemistry from Carnegie Mellon University and  Texas A&M University, respectively while earning a lifetime acceptance rate of 100% for all universities that I applied to for undergrad and grad school, starting at age of 16.
