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 everything they want out of their lives and careers. I love hearing people’s stories, and I believe everyone has a unique story to tell. Working with me means you’ll be more self-aware, self-confident, and stoked about whatever you’re doing next.

After my MBA at HBS, I worked in the Bay Area food / tech start-up scene. I led a licensing business and managed 200 client relationships, but I was even more proud of being the office social leader. I organized a Habitat for Humanity build day, office picnics, and a weekly running club – because I cared about helping my coworkers connect outside the office. I think fun matters. Some other practical things I use in my everyday work: creative writing, yoga and mindfulness practices, and a budding fascination in Human Design (and all things related to self-discovery).

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.

  • Thank You, My Sherpa!!
    6 days 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.

  • Thanks Britt!
    6 days ago
    Working with Britt is a really positive experience. She provided great resources and suggestions, and always prompted me for self-reflection, which helped uncover my personal stories. The career protocol website also provided a lot of structure and resources, which made the application process straightforward. Also, what I appreciated the most was Britt's positive energy, especially during such a long, hard application process. Britt made me feel supported throughout the application process, and I would recommend her without any hesitation!

  • Britt Is The Best!
    6 days ago
    Britt is the Best! I worked with Britt after an unsuccessful round of MBA applications where I had worked with one of the “big name” MBA application consulting firms. The difference was night and day. While the other firm provided some vanilla guidance and grammatical editing, Britt helped me find MY voice and ensured it leaped off the essay pages. Britt dove in from the very beginning to really understand who I am and what makes me unique and then was able to help me craft my applications to ensure that it is ME applying to the programs, not some watered-down caricature of myself. We’ve all felt the terror of reading through an essay prompt and then just staring at that blank page, paralyzed, not ...

  • It Doesn't Get Better Than Britt!
    1 week ago
    I was someone who had almost no MBAs in their personal and professional networks when starting the application process. Through it all, Britt was more than an admissions consultant – she was a cheerleader and a friend whose support and belief in me never wavered, even when I had my own self-doubts. I have never met someone who is so genuinely enthusiastic and optimistic, but who could also take an essay and be brutally honest about its faults when needed. Applying to six top MBA programs (including 3 M7s) all Round 1 was difficult, but Britt helped me minimize timeline-induced stress and ensure every piece of every application was it's absolute best. I didn’t want to write an essay for what “School X wants”; I ...

  • Come For The App, Stay For The Friendship
    2 months ago
    I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Britt during my recent b-school application round. More than anything, I appreciate the holistic approach Britt took that I think was critical for me to feel more comfortable through the whole process, better understand myself and my motivations, and ultimately create more honest and compelling applications to reach my goals. From the beginning, Britt was always friendly, upbeat, and generally a pleasure to work with. She was a fantastic guide to reflecting on my accomplishments, goals, and stories. She showed an uncanny talent for analyzing what I told her and identifying the strands that tie everything together that even a therapist might not find. Sure, plenty of these realizations you could work through on your own, but Britt ...

  • 12/10 Would Recommend
    2 months ago
    If you know what’s good for you, work with Britt! When I started this process, I didn’t have a vision or any long-term goals. Our work together forced me to grow in places that I definitely needed but did not expect. Now, thanks to our work, I’ve got my head on my shoulders, I’ve got a plan, and I’ve got a huge scholarship to my #1 choice MBA program! Britt was super reliable - I could email her freaking out, and she’d get a call scheduled to talk things through asap, which helped soothe extra anxiety about the process. In addition, her enthusiasm really helped get me through the times of the MBA process that were daunting and difficult. Even when we were on ...

  • Great MBA coach & even greater person. Britt is my favorite storyteller!
    3 months ago
    After meeting Britt, I knew I could trust her to help me get admitted into an M7 school. From the start, her organization and two-day turnaround on essays gave me the confidence I needed to feel great about my application. I knew that with Britt working with me, I would submit my best application possible.  As a minority MBA candidate, I trusted her to uncover some of my most vulnerable life stories to create essays that I’ll cherish forever. That trust allowed me to not rely on any outside advice from school alums or friends during the entire process. Once my essays were complete, it felt as if Britt had known me better than some of my closest friends and family members. Her constructive criticism and her ...

  • Thanks Britt!
    9 months ago
    Britt supported me in thinking through a career change. She helped me with both the technical (resume & portfolio, etc) and emotional (confidence building) aspects of taking the next step in my career. She works collaboratively rather than prescriptively and is incredibly positive and encouraging while also providing helpful critical feedback.

  • Had Me See What's Possible!
    9 months ago
    Britt is a fantastic listener. When I was making changes in my career, she was able to help me get clear for myself what I wanted. She has also provided excellent coaching on actions to take in negotiations to ensure I could get the position and salary I wanted. I know she will make a big difference for anyone about to embark on a big change like going to grad school or taking on a new challenge.

  • From The Beginning To The End, Britt Was Phenomenal!
    9 months ago
    I was lucky enough to work with Britt very early on in my business school search, while I was still making decisions regarding specific programs of interest. Britt’s knowledge and insight into the different programs was unbelievably helpful as I finalized my target list of schools. Rather than just offering blanket advice about the application process, Britt took the time to listen to my story and ask me the appropriate questions that allowed her to really grasp what I was looking for in an MBA program. Britt was amazingly thorough in reviewing and structuring my essay. From the tone of the essay to small grammatical changes and word choice, Britt went above and beyond to make sure that my essays were perfect. I don’t know what ...
