Do you have a teen who's feeling overwhelmed with college admission essays? If so, I'm happy to help.

I'm a Stanford (BA) and Northwestern (MSJ) graduate, and also a professional journalist whose work has appeared everywhere from The San Francisco Chronicle to Apple.

I'm also a top college admission essay consultant, a "coach of coaches", whose students have gotten into schools like MITBrown's 8-year undergraduate / medical program, and Stanford. They've won awards including a $100,000 Founders Scholarship to Tulane, and UC Regents Scholarships.

In addition to essays, I assist students with application strategy, helping them craft a persuasive package through their resumevideo scripts, interviews, optional supplemental materials, and more.

Feel free to learn more at Yelp or BrightStory. You can also contact me for a free consultation to see if we're a match.
