Consultant Bio

Originally hailing from Venezuela, I have over 15 years of experience in the consumer goods and pharmaceutical worlds.
I did my Bachelors in Engineering from the Universidad Metropolitana in Caracas, hold a Masters in Science from Tufts University, and a Masters in Business Administration from Columbia Business School. Directly out of college, I worked as part of P&G Latin America where I was part of several product development global teams. Later, I transitioned to biotech and helped a US-based company launch their first-ever product.
These days, I consult in Pharmaceutical/Biotech New Product Planning, helping clients develop marketing and launch strategies for new medicines. And I bring that marketing expertise (plus many years of admissions consulting experience) to my clients, helping them package themselves smartly for the elite business school admissions committees.

  • Got Into Columbia Business School!
    4 years ago
    Honestly, they are one of the best consultants out there! They help you tell your story in such an effortless manner that it's unbelievable. MBA applications can be a very overwhelming process with so many essays and tight deadlines, but these guys are just there pushing you towards your goal from Day 1. I would recommend anyone applying to Business Schools in the US and UK. Complete value for your buck.

  • Made It Through To Wharton, & Kellogg With Scholarship
    5 years ago
    The business school application process was highly stressful for me, as I still had several aspects of my long- & short-term goals that needed to be fleshed out. Moreover, I needed to identify features of my accomplishments that could really help me stand out from the crowd, given the insanely competitive demographic I hailed from. Regina's initial strategy session was incredibly helpful- she was insightful in catching onto facets of my personality & working style, and was unafraid to deviate from the tried & tested "formula" in terms of identifying which types of achievements to highlight. Subsequently, her comments on each iteration of my essays were spot-on, always shared promptly & designed to make the edits as impactful as possible. I would also like to mention ...

  • Admitted to both schools I applied to: Cambridge & Oxford
    6 years ago
    With much joy and gratitude I'd like to let you know that I was accepted into both Cambridge and Oxford, which are the two programmes I applied to. I attended in-person interviews at both universities and in the last two weeks I received offers from both programmes. I have a gut feeling about the programme I will choose but I am now getting deeper into research and talking to current students and alumni so I can make a well-informed decision. Thank you so much for your help along the way. That first assessment that took me ages to complete was a key thing I needed to do and it helped me go through the application process and the interview with a clear understanding of my ...

  • Got through my top choice: The Wharton School with $$$
    6 years ago
    I am an Indian applicant coming from a highly competitive pool. Hoping to apply in Round 1 for the Fall, 2018 enrollment, I reached to about 20+ top admission consulting firms from all over the world. Of all the consultants I spoke with, my interaction with Regina from Admissionado was certainly the best. Even though I had a good GMAT (760), I liked the fact how she was interested in my story and my aspirations contrary to many of the other consultants who were mainly interested in numbers. Our conversation was very personal, and I felt that she believed in my story. It was extremely important for me to work with someone who is positive about making things happen than with someone who’d tell me ...
