About Indrani

I am a Silicon Valley native, with extensive experience at Stanford University, who has practiced as an admissions and career coach for over a decade. I pride myself on building strong rapport with my clients, using a warm approach and sense of humor. I am a true wordsmith, working with my clients to refine their message and build a package that best represents them. My clients become confident they are putting their best foot forward, and get results! Applying my liberal arts education and masters in counseling, I am able to distill the essence of even the most uncertain client through a collaborative process of interview, coaching, conversation, writing, and polishing the final product. From admissions essays, addenda, resumes to diversity statements, I empower my clients to face the common discomfort of self-reflection until they are able to tell their own unique story. I am also an expert at crafting well-balanced school lists, assessing who to write letters of recommendation, highlighting strengths while minimizing perceived weaknesses, interview prep, negotiating scholarship offers and more--everything one will need when embarking upon the overwhelming process of applying to graduate school. In addition, I have an excellent record of bonding with high school students who are navigating the college admissions process, with an emphasis on essay coaching.

Why do I coach?

I coach because there is no better feeling knowing that I have been instrumental when a student attains admission to their dream school! Working collaboratively through the sometimes stressful and overwhelming process, gaining the trust of my clients and experiencing success together is a wonderful experience. Using my masters in counseling, I can also help my clients get through this challenging time emotionally, helping through the stress with unwavering support and motivation.
