When working with individual clients, my approach is simple. I chat with you about your intentions, help you brainstorm, review your draft(s), and provide you with feedback that will help you create an essay that is both genuine and strategic.

As you can see from our testimonials page, I treat each applicant as an individual. I will be honest about my assessment of your current draft and push you to dig deeper while connecting the dots for your readers.

I will help you frame your narrative and put together an essay that will make you a more competitive applicant for your dream school.


In workshops that include anywhere from 5-30 applicants, I guide writers through what it takes to go from a decent Personal Statement to one that will blow their readers away.

My workshops demystify the Personal Statement writing experience by sharing a step-by-step plan that leads applicants through the bog of trying to describe themselves to their readers.

Together, we will go through all the stages of the Personal Statement writing process—brainstorming, writing, revising, and copy-editing—so that workshop participants leave our session with a rough draft and inspiration to keep going until they’ve got an essay that will best reflect who they are.
