Bio
Hello! My name is Joseph and I am excited to have the opportunity to work with you as an admission advisor. As an advisor, I believe in a mentorship model in which my I not only advise my students step by step through the admission process, but also serve as a source of advice, guidance, and at time counseling through the stresses of high school and the college process. My academic background is in anthropology, having both my BA from Gettysburg College and my MA from Columbia University in the subject. I am currently pursuing my PhD in anthropology at the University of California - Davis with my research focusing on Urban studies and youth perception in Sarajevo. My admission experience includes working as a senior intern in the Gettysburg College Admissions Office, being a former Admissions Officer at Truman State University, and having multiple years of professional admission advising experience. Fun fact about me, I have been to 63 different countries.

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.
