Hi, I’m Sarah. As a Career Protocol Instructor, my highest priority is to help clients express themselves in the clearest, most authentic, and most powerful way possible. I’ve studied the craft of writing in educational and professional settings for more than a decade. I am a teacher at heart, and the subject I find most inspiring is the art of self-expression. It’s vital to communication, and communication is what makes our world go ‘round. There’s no calculating the potential impact of a kind word, a strong word, or just the right word. It’s my mission to help others get in touch with their writer-ly identities, channel their own unique voices, and emerge as confident and influential communicators.
Before pursuing my Ph.D. in English at Northwestern University, I earned my BA at the University of Texas at Austin and my MA (also in English) at Northwestern. As a writing consultant for Collin College, a tutor for the University of Texas, and an instructor and researcher at Northwestern University, I’ve honed my own skills and helped countless others perfect theirs. If staring in abject fear at the blank page of a soon-to-be essay, email, or personal statement is a familiar (or a looming) experience, I would love to guide you to a place far beyond that fear–to show you that every chance to express yourself is an opportunity to propel yourself one step closer to all those things you want in life and that everything you need to be a rockstar communicator is already inside you. Let’s do this!
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.
