About

My name is Alex, and I would be thrilled to help you with the college application process! I graduated from Duke University with degrees in Public Policy and French and am now a law student at Wake Forest University. I have been working with students throughout the college application process for the last seven years, and I love seeing students grow in their confidence and writing abilities! I'm originally from Raleigh, North Carolina, and I'm a huge college basketball fan. I even slept in a tent for a month with 11 other people to get into the Duke-UNC basketball game. Also, during college, I raised a puppy named Franco to become a service dog through Canine Companions for Independence. I would love to work with you to make your college applications process as easy and fun as possible! I'm currently accepting new clients for the 2024-2025 application cycle.

My process

I help students with the application process from start to finish. This includes everything from creating a school list to writing school supplemental essays. My process is highly individualized based on each student and their dreams for college.
