Hi! My name’s Nora, and I’m excited to work with you. I graduated from Northwestern University and now work as a director of a nonprofit, project-based college program. Previously, I worked as an applications consultant and manager for three application cycles, helping more than 60 students with everything from school list building and essay editing to interview prep and financial aid navigation. Students I worked with were accepted to Cornell, UChicago, Princeton, Johns Hopkins, Stanford, Yale, and dozens of other amazing colleges and universities across the U.S. I especially love essay editing and enjoy working with students to help them craft essays that add new dimensions to their college applications. I was born and raised in Chicago, but now live in Oakland, CA. Outside of work, I enjoy cooking, hiking, and eating my way through all of the amazing restaurants that the Bay Area has to offer!
