Consultant Bio

Hi, I’m Britt. As a professional development coach, I help my clients (mostly pre-MBA) uncover their defining characteristics, their deepest values, and their future desires so that they can make choices they are proud of and get what they want out of their lives and careers. I love hearing people’s stories, and I believe everyone has a unique perspective to tell. Working with me means you’ll be more self-aware, self-confident, and excited about whatever you’re doing next.

After undergrad at Georgetown and my MBA at HBS, I worked in the Bay Area start-up scene. I led a licensing business and managed 200 client relationships for a fast-growing food tech company. Before business school, I spent three years at Monitor Deloitte working in strategy consulting for clients across pharmaceutical, industrial, consumer products, and non-profit industries. Whether you’re just starting to think about an MBA or know exactly where you want to go, I would love to help you through the process.

Company Information

OK you’re smart, so you’ve probably read a lot of these. Here’s how we’re the same as some admissions consultants out there: in our elite school packages, we touch every single part of your application for your target schools as many times as we need to until the finished product inspires both you and us. We bring over a decade of expertise to bear, and we do all of this on a predictable timeline. Much more interesting, though, is what makes Career Protocol different. We’re not really consultants. We’re teachers. Career Protocol is a Professional Development Firm.

We think the MBA application process is a golden opportunity to uplevel your professional profile and executive skillset BEFORE you take the leap into the MBA. So instead of simply editing your essays, we use the MBA application as a training ground for new capabilities that will last you a lifetime.

THE IRRESISTIBLE MBA APPLICATION PACKAGE

Think of the Irresistible MBA Application Package (as we call it) as a nearly year-long course in executive-level self-awareness, communication, and relationship building skills tailored to your needs and experiences. We work with you on every aspect of the MBA application not only to maximize your chances of success but also to uplevel your executive skillset in the process. Your Career Protocol Instructor will teach you how to explore your values, tell epic stories, and build genuine relationships with your fellow humans in everything you do (yes, even when you’re just writing an MBA application!) so that you can have the impact you want to have in your career. Imagine how empowered you’ll feel the first day of class knowing that you used the whole year prior to your MBA building key leadership skills with an experienced teacher by your side.

 

If you want someone to edit your essays, work with friends and family. If you want to transform your ability to stand out for the rest of your career as the bright shiny unicorn* you are, work with us.

 

*We mean unicorn in the one-of-a-kind-unique sense, not in the instagrammy** rainbow sense.

** We do like instagrammy rainbow unicorns, tho. Especially the cupcake kind.

 

ONCE YOU GET INTO BUSINESS SCHOOL…

The fun doesn’t stop. We’ve got…

  • The Interview Hero Coaching Program
  • YOMO: You Only MBA Once (AKA Your Guide to Getting Your Best MBA Internship), and
  • How to Be the Smartest Person in the Room (AKA The Consulting Case Interview Hero Program)

 

These are all affordable group coaching programs to help you target and get the internship and post-MBA job you really want, while – of course – building your professional skillset every step of the way.

  • Britt is the Best!!
    3 months ago
    Britt was absolutely the best person that I had on my team during my business school application process. She was a cheerleader and partner more than just an admissions consultant, and this made all the difference to me!! You cannot go wrong working with Britt and Career Protocol. She supported me end to end with my applications – right from identifying the right schools, to appropriate recommenders. I was relatively late to the process itself and was also overwhelmed with work during the time. Britt helped me break it down to smaller chunks so that it was more manageable and also set deadlines for different tasks. And it was not just about the applications. She gave me tons of interview prep and practice, and we ...

  • I Wouldn't Have Gotten into HBS Without Britt!
    3 months ago
    When I was exploring options for which MBA admissions consultant to go with, I stumbled across Career Protocol. After an introductory call with Angela and Britt, I knew I wanted to work with Career Protocol. Britt and I worked extensively to distill highly technical language into terms that a high school student would understand, which helped convey the impact of my accomplishments very well. It took a lot of edits for the essay and the resume to get to that simplified state and Britt was very patient throughout the whole process. I loved how Britt could convey very incisive feedback on my essays and resume without demotivating me. She kept to timelines and never missed a deadline. On the interview prep call, Britt asked organic ...

  • Best Part Of The Application Process!
    3 months ago
    Applying to Business School is a difficult, time consuming and intensive process but working with Britt was the best decision I made. My biggest regret is that I didn't start working with her sooner! I initially sought out help from Career Protocol for accountability with deadlines and help with essays. I had struggled to get an acceptable GMAT score and so was behind when it came to applications and essays. Britt helped me with all that and more, even with a less than ideal timeline! I could not have survived applying to schools without Britt's encouragement and guidance. I struggled with writing my first application essay but Britt nudged me to get going and then as we worked through draft after draft she provided the ...

  • Thank You, Britt!
    3 months ago
    I originally wanted to work with an Admissions Consultant to keep me on track with deadlines. Britt and Career Protocol, however, went far beyond keeping me on track. Britt taught me to push beyond the surface with my essays and get to the deeper, more meaningful points that would further separate me from other candidates. She armed me with a knowledge and appreciation of self-reflection, a process that though difficult, is critical throughout both this process and one’s career. I have walked out of this experience more confident in my unique abilities and strengths and aware of my areas of growth, both of which will serve me well as I start school next fall at my first choice program. If I could emphasize anything ...

  • Best Decision In My MBA Application Journey
    3 months ago
    I cannot say enough great things about working with Britt. At the beginning of the application process, I was completely overwhelmed. Britt and Career Protocol gave me the sense of structure I needed to know where to start and what to prioritize. Britt instilled confidence in me time after time (I had lots of mini panic attacks along the way) and helped me BELIEVE that I could achieve my B-school goals. Working with Britt allowed me to apply to five schools in a single round while working a demanding consulting job (it’s not easy!!). Ultimately, I got into multiple top schools and will be attending my dream school in the fall. Before meeting Britt, I would’ve never imagined that this was possible. A few things that ...

  • Couldn't Have Done It Without Britt!
    3 months ago
    With Britt’s help, I got into my top choice school with a full-tuition scholarship and a living stipend! I honestly wouldn’t have been able to get through the grueling b-school application process without Britt. I started the process crunched for time since I decided to apply late, which made me feel super stressed out. Britt helped calm my nerves especially as the deadlines approached and ultimately helped push me through the hump to make sure I got to the finish line. What initially drew me to Britt and Career Protocol was her/their emphasis on getting to know me as a person, rather than another candidate with statistics. I came from a non-traditional background for b-school. For me, imposter syndrome was real and Britt really helped me ...

  • Britt Helped Me Get Into My Dream School!
    6 months ago
    I am so thankful I decided to work with Britt and Career Protocol during my business school application process. I spoke to a few other consultants as I was doing my research, but I was immediately drawn to Britt because of her friendliness, energy, and very unique tone vs the rest of the market - everything about her exuded creativity and fun, which is what I knew I needed to add to my application (coming from a very traditional finance background). Britt got to know me so well in so little time and encouraged me to take risks in my essays that I wouldn't have done on my own. When I began working with Britt, I had already applied to GSB once and gotten rejected ...

  • Absolute BEST Consultant Of All Time
    6 months ago
    I cannot recommend Britt and Career Protocol more highly. Instead of the coach/player relationship I was expecting, Britt made it clear early on that we were partners in my application process. She did not simply want to get me into the best business school possible – she wanted to get me into the right MBA program for me, at the right school. Britt guided me seamlessly through the grinding process of applying to elite MBA programs when I had no idea what to do next. Britt pushed me not only to focus my true voice and goals into my applications, but she also inspired me to dream bigger. Many of the MBA goals I have reached today were once unthinkable – until I met Britt. The ...

  • Britt Is Incredible, More Of A Life Guide Than A Consultant
    6 months ago
    Working with Britt is like working with a therapist. After each phone call, I felt the pressure was lifted. She made it all okay. She is an incredible sounding board offering perspective and guidance and was somehow able to take my messy career history and map it out to help me create a story that made sense, to me and to the admission committee. She also did this in an insanely quick turnaround period - I'm a procrastinator and reached out for help one week before the HBS app was due. She gave a super clear structure to a daunting process and having her hold me to timelines made all the difference. Her feedback on essays was direct and honest, no sugar coating what I ...

  • Thank You, My Sherpa!!
    6 months ago
    The B-school application process can seem like a daunting black box, but it was nice to be guided by a sherpa-like Britt and Career Protocol. Her fast turnaround time and responsiveness were really helpful - it is nice that the expectations were clearly laid out from the start and cadence of the review was clearly established. I can't even begin to count how many drafts she helped to read! I appreciated being able to talk through my essays and have interview practice. Through it all, Britt provided a judgment-free space and truly boosted my confidence. Her optimism and upbeat attitude was a breath of fresh air in an otherwise crazy process.
