Bio

ABOUT ME: As a "career student," I've gotten used to applications in higher ed. I understand the challenge in setting yourself apart. On paper, test scores and high school grades can only say so much. You need compelling college essays that let each institution get to know you!

ABOUT ME: As a "career student," I've gotten used to applications in higher ed. I understand the challenge in setting yourself apart. On paper, test scores and high school grades can only say so much. You need compelling college essays that let each institution get to know you!

I have experience in higher education and student affairs at top-tier public and private universities, including the University of Virginia (undergraduate and masters), the University of Pennsylvania (doctorate), and Stanford University (postdoc). I've worked in residence life, academic advising, alumni affairs, research grant advising, and classroom instruction. I also have an interdisciplinary background, from the natural sciences to social sciences and professional disciplines. With this diverse set of academic experiences, I'm well-equipped to help you think through possible issues and ideas about applying to college.

Writing is my craft. As an academic, I write journal articles, blog posts, grants, and other pieces designed to grab your attention and make a clear point. I'm keen to cut through buzzwords and hype. We'll work together to find your most authentic writing voice, then use it to tell a story that has readers envisioning you at their institution.

MY LOCATIONS: I am available for tutoring in-person in San Francisco and parts of the South Bay (SF to Palo Alto), and online for all interested students.

I have experience applying to undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate programs at top-tier public (University of Virginia) and private (University of Pennsylvania, Stanford University) institutions. During my time in higher education, I also have worked in student affairs at U.Va. and UPenn, as an advisor and mentor. I was also an Instructor in the UPenn Urban Studies Program during the Spring 2015 semester. I graduated with honors with a BA/BUEP from University of Virginia in 2010. I received my MUEP from University of Virginia in 2011. I have a PhD from University of Pennsylvania, earned in 2015. I am currently a Postdoc student at Stanford University.
