I have worked with students in the following areas:

It has been one of my greatest pleasures to nurture students’ writing as it evolves – witnessing as their writing “catches up” with their tremendous ideas. During my teaching career, my students ranged widely in ability level, from top honors students to the more traditional college prep. One of my core strengths, therefore, is helping all students reach their greatest potential.

Why I am passionate about being an essay specialist:

College, for me, was one of the most eye-opening and profound times of my life. That was primarily due to my school being an excellent fit for me, as it should be for all students so that they can thrive. College essays are students’ opportunity to share their genuine, best self with admissions offices through their writing. I can’t think of a better job than helping students journey through this process.

Campus Bound Office: I work remotely from home.

Hobbies/interests: Reading, traveling, making jewelry, practicing yoga, and spending lots of time with my three children and husband.
