Consultant Bio

From Wall Street to Fifth Avenue, from sunny Cali to the Big Apple, I went from a technology investment banker in San Francisco to a finance and strategy professional at a global cosmetics company in New York City.
I received my undergraduate degree in Business Administration from UC Berkeley and worked in investment banking after college. Although I became quite the Excel whiz, I realized that my true calling was in consume r-centric industries, so I went back to school and earned my MBA from The Wharton School, where I double majored in Management and Marketing. Since then, I’ve worked in strategic planning, corporate finance, and digital analytics across media & entertainment and CPG companies such as Comcast and L’Oréal. I’ve lived in eight cities across three continents and now reside in New York City.
I came to know Admissionado as a client back in my Wharton application days and knew instantly that I wanted to join the team upon graduation. I just loved the culture, the results-driven focus, and the insanely smart team. I also knew first-hand how important the mentorship relationship was and I wanted to provide that to other people going through the process. Now I’m dedicated to leveraging my diverse background and knack for storytelling to provide incisive strategy for my clients that’ll cut through all the noise and get‘em straight to the top of the admit pile. And if they ask, I also teach‘em a trick or two in Excel.

  • Thanks, Admissionado

    I worked with Melody Lin and Claudia on three schools. I prefer to work with a Chinese speaking consultant, so there aren't many options, to begin with. The other thing I was looking for was a great essay editing. Admissionado's website and intro materials came across as witty and funny so I gave it a shot. Claudia is amazing in her response speed solving all the admin questions. Melody is also good at providing a general strategy to MBA application. What makes Admissionado shine is its ability to edit essays, they don't just edit it but encourage you to really dig deep and write something that will shine through your application. I got into one of the three schools that I applied to, even ...
