My process

I consider myself an expert in helping you craft your 'story'—the storytelling component is the most important part of a college application today. I dedicate my time to working through all the kinks of your high school story, and painting you in the best light possible to the admissions office, through your essays. The majority of my time with clients is spent brainstorming and writing essays, and I give very direct and honest advice about what you should and should not do throughout the process.
Tips for success
1. Prepare for your first session
Plan out the questions and topics you'd like to discuss. If you'd like to work together in the long term, discuss expectations for each other.
