About

Hi! I am a graduate of Duke University where I studied Computer Science and Music with a minor in Statistics. My passion for helping people perfectly craft and present their personal story led me to start work as an applications consultant. Throughout my experience so far, I have helped twelve clients gain admission to at least one of their top 3 school choices as well as a number of scholarships and programs, with client majors ranging from computer science and engineering to history and architecture. My specialization and interest in essay editing stems from my own college application experience as well as reviewing countless essays from clients, family, and friends. Outside of academics, I enjoy playing piano and cello, basketball, chess, and poker. I am looking forward to working with you!

My process

Every applicant has an individual, personal, and unique background- and it's my passion to help you find, craft, and present that story through the college application process. By learning about your character, interests, and personality, I aim to create a comprehensive and cohesive narrative throughout all parts of the process, from extracurricular descriptions to major selection to essay writing, that catches the eye of each and every admissions officer. I encourage you to schedule an initial consultation to learn more about my process and how I can help you choose and set up the right path for the future! ***Unfortunately I am out of availability for packages/sessions this cycle, but would still love to work with you through essay reviews!***
