About Me

Austin, Texas
University of Texas at Austin, BS in Biology with a minor in Education
Moving to the United States at the age of six and being a child of immigrants, I know firsthand how difficult it is to navigate the college system. My passion for college admissions counseling derives from providing knowledge and experience to families unfamiliar with the college process and guiding them confidently every step of the way. By doing so, I enjoy building relationships with each family and helping students find their unique voice.

I believe that there is no single approach that is right for every college applicant. However, after working with so many students, I know by highlighting a students’ accomplishments and cultivating their unique perspectives, we will be able to craft a comprehensive application that will make them shine in the eyes of any college admission board.

My educational background is a BS in Biology and a minor in UTeach at the University of Texas at Austin. Beyond college admission counseling for the last 6+ years, I’ve also worked as a high school teacher at McCallum High School in Austin, Texas, teaching AP Biology, Anatomy and Physiology Honors, PAP Biology, IPC (Integrated Physics and Chemistry), and Aquatic Science. Working closely with high school students, I want them to see college admissions not as another hoop to jump through but as the start of their future.
