Consultant Bio

I have been coaching MBA admissions clients since graduating Kellogg in 2008. With my clients, I bring a strong commitment to client service and expertise in the admissions process, particularly around creating a strong story and cohesive application to use the MBA experience to propel significant career shifts.

As a master of career switching, I credit my Kellogg MBA to give me the confidence and skills necessary to make these changes. After starting my career as a Teach for America Corps member and as a consultant for Accenture, I applied to business school to switch careers to brand management. Kellogg gave me lifelong tools to make this transition possible – working at Unilever for three years within brand management – and also gave me the skills needed to transition back to Education Reform and to eventually find my passion as an MBA Admissions Consultant.

I hold a B.A. in Marketing and Business Honors from the McComb’s School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin, and an MBA from Kellogg School of Management.

Outside of work, I enjoy intense workouts (Megaformer, Orange theory), riding in Mardi Gras parades and spending time with family.

P&Q Consultant Reviews

  • Personable and Personalized!

    "After using another consulting company, I felt that I still didn't have a sense of how to make my application stand out for ME. Eileen took the time to talk through my experiences and goals to understand what would make me a unique candidate and to highlight that in the application. I purchased a package of 5 hours to work together which was sufficient to prepare essays for about 4 applications. She was able to help me decide between potential ideas to get essays started and then to help whittle them down to the appropriate word counts. Working with her not only improved my submitted application but also helped me to understand what I might want to focus on once interviews came around. Even if ...Read the full review.

  • Would absolutely recommend Eileen!

    "Eileen was instrumental in helping with business school applications. Before working together, Eileen takes the time to get to know you and understand your goals. She is incredibly personable, encouraging throughout an otherwise stressful process, and intelligent. She provided extremely insightful feedback that truly strengthened my essays. She also provided very constructive feedback and helpful interview tips after conducting interview prep; I had very successful interviews at both schools after following her recommendations from our feedback session. Eileen caters to whatever schedule you are on and is very timely in her feedback. She made this process less stressful and less intimidating. I was admitted to both schools I applied to with scholarships. I would undoubtedly recommend Eileen for any step in the business school application ...Read the full review.
