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, all 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.

If you have any questions about my approach or the packages I offer, please feel free to message me before booking!
