What I like most about being a Stratus MBA Admissions Counselor:
Gaining the trust of my clients, so that I can tailor my coaching/mentoring style to meet their individual needs and helping them identify the MBA program that will set them up to successfully meet their goals.
One piece of advice I would share with someone who is applying to business school:
I encourage clients to look beyond the rankings for a program that offers the culture, curriculum, and clubs that will help them build the knowledge, skills, and relationships to get them from where they are today to where they want to be post-MBA.
Highlight or greatest accomplishment while working with Stratus:
I was thrilled to learn that one of my clients, who came to me with a list of about fifteen programs, pared the list down and applied to four schools and was admitted to her top choice school with a Dean’s Fellowship covering full tuition.
3 Random Facts:
- After watching Charlie’s Angels and Agent 99 on Get Smart and visiting the FBI building in 8th grade, I wanted to be an FBI agent. I actually interviewed with the CIA out of undergrad before withdrawing my application when I accepted another job (at CRA). Just one letter off.
- I watched the US Women’s soccer team win the gold medal in the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.
- Before starting business school, I drove around the US for three weeks visiting twenty-eight states and taking cooking classes in New Orleans and Santa Fe. Chicken Creole anyone?
