Susan’s personal passion for human behavior and psychology give her a unique ability to understand a student’s personal journey and identify the most compelling aspects of their character. The bedrock of her coaching approach is helping students to tell that story in the voice that best speaks to the values of top business schools.
Born in New York City, but raised in Montenegro, Susan made the proverbial hour-long walk to and from school. The walk was no chore, as, from an early age, Susan realized education brought empowerment. It was her own relentless pursuit of higher education and rising above any externally imposed limits that brought her back to New York.
Not only earning degrees from NYU and Yale but being embedded in university life with participation in clubs, committees, and other student activities, Susan knows how to get the very best return from an investment in education. This same passion, involvement, and dedication led to her work at a leading US Hedge Fund and later, a large European Private Equity firm. This global work experience, combined with her New York hustle, naturally draws the most ambitious financial service professionals and Wall Street hopefuls.
As a boutique consulting firm in New York, Sia Admissions works with a select number of clients to ensure a level of service and personalized coaching difficult to find at larger firms. As the founder, Susan personally works with every client when identifying their story and the approach to be implemented with each application.
The team at Sia takes great personal pride in the academic success and ensuing career success of their clients. Sia is proud to have helped future leaders access the likes of MIT Sloan, Harvard, Wharton, Cambridge Judge, and more. Their proudest moments, however, is assisting clients to access educational opportunities that may have otherwise been lost. For example, a client reached out to Sia after being rejected on all applications in 2018. With Sia’s help for 2019, they not only got admitted to their top choice institution but were offered a significant scholarship. This kind of impact is why Susan founded Sia Admissions.
