Hi! My name is Charli. As a professional with 15 years of experience in all things international higher education, my passion is helping international-minded MBA-aspirants take brave, bold leaps to create lives by their own design. I do this through my years of experience in recruitment and admissions at brilliant institutions like Brunel, Exeter and Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell. I am thrilled when my students meet their inner brilliance; I believe in their vision and love coaching them to bring it life!
While earning an MA in Diplomatic Studies, I was the Managing Director of Westminster Business Consultants in London where I led students interested in gaining professional experience on projects for high-profile companies. I became a project manager and worked on education projects throughout the Middle East, the former Soviet Union and Vietnam. In fact, I’ve worked in over 50 countries with students from countless more alongside government ministries and international universities. I love a good Russian banya when in Moscow, downing a pint in the Eagle when I’m in London and hiking the gorgeous Cascades with my son when I’m home in Oregon. I expand my inner borders with meditation and my life’s work – which includes working with you – is motivated by making our world intellectually borderless.
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.
