I’m a former Assistant Dean of Admission at Wesleyan University, where, in addition to evaluating candidates for admission, I read applications for the prestigious full-tuition Freeman Asian Scholarship Program. I really fell in love with college admissions as a student in the Undergraduate Office of Admission at Cornell University, my undergraduate alma mater, and interviewed prospective students once I graduated. These experiences at Cornell led me to pursue my master’s degree in education at Harvard Graduate School of Education.
I’m a true coach at heart, and have enjoyed working with high school students navigating the college admission process. The summer after I graduated from Cornell, I worked with Upward Bound students, a Department of Education-funded program aimed at helping high school students prepare for their college applications. Helping them create college lists and outline their essays was one of the most rewarding coaching experiences of my life!
In my free time, I love any activity that gets me out on the water! Kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, swimming, rowing, you name it. I also enjoy nature travel, yoga, and hunting for the best Tex Mex in Austin.
