Jesse's MBA Qualifications
My clients have gotten into top business schools such as Harvard (HBS), Berkeley (Haas), and MIT). I am a Stanford GSB graduate and was accepted to every business school I applied to. I'm a former engineer turned PM; so I understand the non-traditional applicant's path.

Jesse also coaches for College
I'm a current climate tech Product Manager and graduate of the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB), here to help you put together an authentic compelling MBA application, particularly if you're from a minority or non-traditional background. My clients have gotten into top business schools, such as Harvard Business School (HBS), Berkely (Hass), and MIT (Sloan). I'm passionate about building/creating, hence the PM role. Before Stanford, I worked as a systems engineer at Northrop Grumman, a top US defense contractor, leading a development team for a new Machine-Learning-as-a-service toolkit for analysts. My undergraduate degree was in Biomedical Engineering from Duke University (where I currently interview undergraduate applicants). Despite coming from a non-traditional background, I was lucky enough to earn admission to the GSB, MIT Sloan, and Duke Fuqua programs.
Why do I coach?
As a coach, I firmly believe that the best application is an authentic one, so we'll work together to help you tell your true story in a compelling way to admissions committees. I'm the best fit for anyone who is new to the business school ecosystem: those from non-traditional and minority backgrounds. As someone who identifies with both, I myself didn't have a coach when I applied and would have benefitted from it hugely, so I want to pass that help on. The whole process was like a foreign language to me, so by coaching, I hope to ease some of the burdens for the next generation of applicants.
