I worked in the admissions office at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business, reading and evaluating thousands of MBA applications over a period of five years, earning the title of “reader warrior” along the way. As Assistant Director of Admissions, I contributed to application revisions, wrote for the admissions blog, conducted information sessions for prospective students, counseled individuals, and organized a conference to recruit underrepresented applicants.
Most recently, I served as Executive Director for an education nonprofit, and have provided consulting services to four other educational nonprofit organizations as a member of the Stanford Business School Alumni Consulting Team (ACT). I have also worked with dozens of students who have successfully applied to top tier law, business, and undergraduate programs. Although there is no one-size-fits-all approach, I believe that everyone can create a compelling application that will stand out, and that the process itself can be a positive and empowering experience.
Soccer is my primary recreational activity, and I moderate a professional soccer forum and volunteer as registrar and referee for a local youth soccer league with over 1600 players. I have coached 24 soccer and basketball teams, including three championship winners. My four kids range in age from teens to twenties, including one who graduated from Stanford and Harvard Law and another who graduated from UCLA and currently attends Georgetown Law. I would love to work with you as you embark on your transformational adventure.
