Bio
The college applications process is all about responding to one question: who are you? I am passionate about helping students craft a creative answer. I have been helping students gain admission to the T25 schools of their dreams since 2018. Soon after graduating from Georgetown University with a B.A. in History and minors in French and Russian (I also speak Portuguese), I made college advising my career.

I currently mentor students through one-on-one consulting sessions. I specialize in helping international applicants and college essay writing. I also have expertise in MBA applications, and helped an entrepreneur who did not finish undergrad gain admission to the Cambridge Judge MBA program. When I am not advising or hosting a CollegeVine livestream, you can find me taking a road trip or reading a novel in French.
