Q & A

Why are you passionate about coaching?

I’ve always really enjoyed coaching, especially helping people with different expertise articulate what makes their story unique and compelling. It is exciting to utilize the strategic positioning and communication skills I have developed throughout my career to help clients best position themselves for success in the MBA admission process.

What’s your top piece of advice for admissions candidates?

The best advice I got from an adcom member when I was applying - over a glass of wine - was to write the first draft of your essays in one sitting without really thinking or worrying about grammar or word count. Then put it away for a few days and re-read the uninhibited responses to think about the framing of the stories you are telling in the context of the rest of your application. Once you have the content right, edit it to make sure the language is as clear and concise as possible.
