Bio
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.

Work Experience: Throughout my advising career, I’ve helped tons of students craft their perfect admissions narrative, nail their interviews, maximize their standardized test scores and ultimately, gain acceptance to their dream schools! During undergrad, I worked as an RA in two research labs, culminating in published work, in addition to serving as a near-peer public speaking coach. I am currently completing my MSc in Evolution of Language and Cognition at the University of Edinburgh.

My Admissions Story: As a low-income student, I had no idea how to approach college admissions. I remember looking at the sticker prices for the schools I was interested in and worrying that college might not actually be for me. Fortunately, I was able to find my way, navigating the complex process of admissions and aid. I’m so excited to be in a position to help other students who feel as I once did.
