A little more in-depth

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.
