Consultant Bio

I specialize in helping business school and college candidates understand their individual strengths and weaknesses, what makes them unique, and how to strategically communicate this information to admissions teams. By limiting my client roster, I can devote personal attention and significant time to each candidate.

I have more than 15 years of admissions experience, including my time as the Associate Director of Admissions at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth and on Dartmouth’s undergraduate admissions committee. I was the lead diversity recruiter at Tuck and also served as a Trustee and Chair of the Executive Committee for the Consortium for Graduate School Management.
