“I advised my first pre-MBA applicant back in 1997. Since then, I’m delighted to have helped hundreds of clients earn admission to the world’s top business, law, medical, and graduate schools. Helping talented, accomplished people articulate their visions and uniqueness in a compelling, personal way has since become a passion for me, and I have yet to meet a client who didn’t have a story to tell. Uncovering and polishing each client’s special blend of skills, experiences, and values has taught me an extraordinary amount, and I’m pleased that so many of my clients have gained admission to the schools of their dreams. I look forward to working with you.”
