I'm so proud of my students!!! From full-tuition scholarships to admissions into Ivy League schools, congratulations to each one of you in the Class of 2023!
I am a Vanderbilt Ph.D. student and Russell Hamilton Scholar at the Peabody College of Education and Human Development. As an Applications Consultant, I have collaborated with students to gain Ivy League acceptances, full-tuition scholarships, and admission into top-choice schools.
As a teacher for three years, I have worked with over 400 elementary, middle, and high school students, giving me the skills to break down difficult topics into organized steps and work with students with a variety of learning differences and skills. As a graduate student and Master of Education graduate, I not only have strong writing chops, but also the ability to teach these skills to the students I work with. One Harvard professor said that the opening to my Ph.D. personal statement was one of the best introductions they had ever read.

College admissions can be daunting—there's so many things to do! I work with students to make their admissions process organized and fun; together, we can break down application milestones into bite-sized steps that you can master. You got this!
Want some expert eyes over your applications before you send them off? I'm your girl! From some last tightening up to a final grammar check, this package can give you security and confidence when hitting "submit." Or... it's your time! This can be your first intro into advising. We can talk extracurriculars, create the CommonApp, or work on 3 supplemental essays!
With 3 hours of Zoom, we can talk through ideas for the Common App, outline, draft, and revise the draft into a final product. This is broken down into 3 weeks of calls. Most likely, as many of my clients have found, we will also have time to finish 1-2 other supplemental essays as well!
Junior Year Check-ins!
1-hour check-ins 4x throughout your junior year to give you the confidence to build a strong academic and extracurricular profile during the toughest year in high school!
A Firm Foundation
With five hours, we can lay the foundation for a solid, successful admissions process - whatever you need! In five hours, we can build a school list, create an application theme, write a CommonApp essay, and finish up to 3 supplemental essays. If you have finished the CommonApp already, this could be up to 5 supplemental essays!
This package takes you from the very beginning of brainstorming for your Common App and finalizing that ideal school list to where you have your CommonApp and more than half your supplementals done. With 10 hours (essentially 10 weeks of 1-hour regular advising), you'll have the confidence to continue on your college application journey. Plus, you can always purchase more hours later!
Confidence in Your College
This package takes you from the very beginning of brainstorming for your CommonApp and solidifying your school list to the point where you confidently and joyfully can choose your perfect school. I recommend this for students who are applying to less than 8 schools plus some merit-based scholarships. Additional hours can always be purchased, if needed, at the same discount as this package.
Step by Step, Together
This package takes you from the very beginning of brainstorming for your CommonApp and solidifying your school list to the point where you confidently and joyfully can choose your perfect school. I recommend this for students who are applying to 10+ schools, especially students who are applying for highly selective universities and additional merit-based scholarships.
