What I like most about being a Stratus MBA Admissions Counselor:
Helping clients think through their career goals, the things that are important to them, and ultimately seeing them admitted to their dream schools.
One piece of advice I would share with someone who is applying to business school:
Start the process early. There are a lot of moving pieces to the business school application process and the earlier you start, the less stressed out you’ll be, and the stronger your application will be.
3 Random Facts:
- For some strange reason, I enjoyed knitting as a child. Not so much these days.
- I don’t have much of an athletic bone and thought joining my high school bowling team would somehow redeem me. I wasn’t any good at that either and only lasted a couple of months on the team.
- I’ve managed a food truck operation before.
