The expert coaches
UCLA Anderson former Associate Director of Admissions
Jessica is a 10 year veteran of graduate admissions. At UCLA Anderson, she served on the admissions committee as Associate Director of Admissions, evaluating and interviewing thousands of applicants for the full-time MBA program. In addition, she managed the program’s recruiting and admit events around the world, advised on fellowship decisions for admitted students, and collaborated on strategic projects alongside the school’s senior leadership team.
Before joining UCLA, Jessica was the Graduate Admissions Advisor for the Master of Accounting and Business Taxation programs at USC’s Marshall School of Business. Her desire to help candidates discover their potential through higher education is what led her to Fortuna Admissions.
Jessica received her BS in Business Administration from UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business and her MA in Student Affairs from UCLA’s Graduate School of Education & Information Studies. Prior to her career in admissions, she was a Senior Tax Associate with Deloitte, serving clients in technology, manufacturing, real estate, and hospitality, among others. Jessica can be found perusing the shelves at used bookstores or exploring LA’s eclectic neighborhoods in her spare time.

I truly felt that Fortuna went above and beyond what was promised; they were generous with their time, their network, their advice, and their experience. I would consider them more than coaches, but friends, and recommend the Fortuna team 100%, wholeheartedly!

Still can’t believe it, I got in at INSEAD! Fortuna’s advice was invaluable in helping me craft my application. With timely and thorough feedback, I was able to draw upon the right experiences that allowed me to put my best foot forward. I would highly recommend this experience to any prospective applicants.

You have first-hand knowledge of the admissions process (and not in a secondary role as many others) and can leverage that experience.
You are also a fun team to work with. Working for months on your applications can be stressful so this makes a difference.

Working with Fortuna is like having Warren Buffett as your personal financial advisor.

I have been admitted to Stanford! This would never have been possible without your help. Beyond helping me correct the structure of the essays you helped me push my thinking especially on the ‘what matters most to me’ question.
