Q & A

What’s your coaching superpower?

Beyond that I am always on email, so am very responsive… storytelling. I have a knack for analyzing a candidate’s profile and helping them craft a narrative that perhaps they hadn’t thought of before – one that helps them present their story and career goals in a way that their app stands out from the crowd. Sometimes this means getting creative, especially for those candidates whose profiles are quite common.

Why are you passionate about coaching?

From past experience as a sailing instructor, lacrosse and basketball coach (seriously!), as well as academic tutor and college, graduate school, and MBA admissions counselor – I've helped hundreds of people meet their athletic, academic and educational goals. For as long as I can remember I've been a coach. There's nothing I find more interesting and rewarding than getting to know an individual's story and helping them connect the dots between where they have been, where they want to go and the MBA.
