InGenius Prep

As I prepared to leave for college, my father told me that having excellent communication skills was a key to success. I chose to study English Literature at Lake Forest College because I enjoyed reading and writing (I still do!). Although the major didn’t seem practical in terms of providing a specific career path, I graduated with excellent communication skills and found a career in graduate school admissions.

Over the last 15 years, I have put those communication skills to good use while working at two Ivy League institutions. As the Assistant Director of Admissions at the Yale School of Public Health and as a pre-health advisor at Yale College, I came to understand the admissions process from the perspective of an admissions committee member as well that of an applicant.  I took that knowledge with me to the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University where I worked as an admissions officer and recruiter.  

I enjoy guiding students through the application process and helping them create unique and competitive applications that reflect their strengths, their interests and their goals for the future.  I can’t wait to work with you!
