My process

I take a holistic approach that helps clients to become more self-aware and answer some fundamental questions about themselves before delving into the admissions process. “Know thyself” is my guiding philosophy, and I help prospective students to address challenging questions about their passions, interests, fears, and navigating the expectations of their support network. Only after building that foundation can we plan an admissions journey and build exceptional and authentic essays. As a tenure-track biology professor, I can provide my clients with a unique perspective on common pitfalls I see in today’s freshman – a lack of planning skills, intrinsic motivation, and intentionality. I want to model the advisor-client relationship as one that teaches future college students skills in time management, communication, setting reasonable deadlines, and meeting them. I offer more than just college advice and essay editing services – I want to give my clients experience building the executive functioning skills I know they will need to succeed in their academic journey.
Tips for success
1. Prepare for your first session
