Introduction

With experience working with high school and undergraduate students, I have worked to support students through academic endeavors and the application process. As a Stanford and Harvard alum familiar with the college application process, I work with each student to find their voice, craft their best work possible, and take the stress out of academic and application writing.

Q&A

Q: How do I get in contact with you?

A: Please send me messages on Walnut if you have any questions. We can plan a phone call or chat to finalize any plans.

Q: Why is essay editing and assistance necessary?

A: Essays are the place to stand out and show who you are. Beyond the resume, transcripts, and activities list, who are you as a person? What do you value? How will you add to the campus if accepted? Essays can be cumbersome, but they allow you to demonstrate why your intended schools would be lucky to have you. I work to help students tell their stories effectively and impactfully.

Q: Why should I hire you?

A: I care, pay attention to detail, and want to guide students to the next level in their journey. As someone who did not have assistance navigating the application process, I understand how daunting it can be and hope to take away some of the stress.
