Bio
I am a rising Vanderbilt Ph.D. student and Russell Hamilton Scholar at the Peabody College of Education and Human Development. As an Applications Consultant for three cycles, I collaborated with students to gain Ivy League acceptances, full-tuition scholarships, and admission into top-choice schools. As a secondary school 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. As a graduate student and Master of Education graduate, I not only have strong writing skills, 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.

I attended Vanderbilt on a full-tuition merit-based scholarship as a Cornelius Vanderbilt Scholar. There, I majored in mathematics and received Honors in the College of Arts & Sciences. As a former premed student (I plan to pursue my M.D. after the completion of my Ph.D.), math major, violin performance minor, and social science researcher, I have a strong interdisciplinary foundation. This background enables me to effectively work with students to blend complex ideas with personal experiences to create compelling essays. I am extremely excited to use my experience as an applications consultant, teacher, and student to help you create a competitive application that shows how amazing you truly are. I cannot wait to work with you! Schedule a free consultation or send in an essay for essay review, and you’ll hear back from me soon.

Also, please note: Many of my students are from low-income contexts. If this applies to you, please go ahead and schedule a free consultation. We can talk about how best to navigate the college admissions process! I am a big believer in the accessibility of four-year universities to low-income students (especially first-generation low-income students), and would love to help you out. Several of my students who are first-gen, low-income students have received full-tuition scholarships to the schools of their dreams. I am looking forward to meeting you!

<A second note: I am out of office Sunday June 19th through June 30th for summer vacation but will be back July 1st. I look forward to speaking with you after then!>
