Q & A

Why are you passionate about coaching?

I enjoy accompanying people on their leadership journey and specifically on their self-discovery and definition that comes in preparing the application to a top program. I’m intrigued by the story each one of has to tell, by our motivations and passions and our vision of the future. Understanding each person and helping them to express their value and align with a school that will help them reach their goals is truly rewarding.

What’s your favorite client success story?

My favorite client success story is about a candidate with an excellent and interesting profile, combining an engineering degree, entrepreneurship experience, a successful decision to follow his passion in Human Resources and an outstanding GMAT. So what was the problem? Confidence and recognizing his true value. We were able to craft his story and utilize vocabulary to share his experience in a positive way. He was granted admission to several top schools and is deciding where to go. Recognizing his unique value and contribution to the program and school was key to his success.
