InGenius Prep

I have served as both an Former Associate Program Dean at Emory’s Goizueta Business School and a Former Admissions Officer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  In addition to my work in academia, I have had a success career leading in both profit and not-for–profit companies.  While I have enjoyed adding value in each role I have taken on, none of those roles have been as fulfilling as those I have had in supporting the development of young talented people, whether for college or career progression.  I believe my broad educational and life experiences will help me to support you, not only present your best self, but also, ensure the path forward is aligned with your interests, abilities and emerging opportunities.

I was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I earned my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from MIT and an MBA in Management and Finance from Emory University. I enjoy helping others think strategically about solving problems and developing as individuals. I look forward to working with you and your family as you seek to develop effective strategies for targeting and earning admissions into some of the nation’s best colleges.

My hobbies include listening to music, particularly jazz, international travel, photography and reading. I am married with three beautiful and successful children, and a fun-loving dog, named Chester!
