About Us

Get an edge on the college admissions process with help from a former Harvard academic adviser.

Our founder is a passionate advocate for students and has many years of experience as a teacher and academic advisor at the university and graduate level.  She graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College in 2001 and cum laude from Harvard Law School in 2004.  She served as a teaching fellow in Harvard University’s Department of Government and the Center for Middle Eastern Studies and was an academic adviser in residence to first year college students at Harvard for several years, and was also an admissions interviewer for Harvard.

She worked as a litigation attorney at a pre-eminent international firm based in New York City.  During that time, she also served as a clinical instructor at Columbia Law School.  In 2009, she left her career in law to pursue public service as a diplomat, serving in North Africa, Iraq, and Central Europe before returning to the private sector.

The author of numerous articles and a former speechwriter to ambassadors and other senior diplomats, our founder brings strong communications skills to her work and can help any student tell his or her story through the applications, essay, and personal interview.

Patient, knowledgeable, and deeply committed to helping students, she can help you with the complicated and sometimes daunting college admissions process.  Her goal is the same as yours:  getting you into a school you will love and that will help you excel.
