Former Ad Comm, Ross MBA, and Pro Admissions Coach (15 Years of Exp)

The choice to pursue an MBA is a significant investment of time and resources, and it deserves a thoughtful approach. I'll partner with you on any and all parts of your process. I'm a Ross MBA (University of Michigan) with admissions committee experience at Ross. I've spent the last 15 years successfully coaching MBA applicants through the admissions process with my own firm (MBA Pathfinders) and with top-rated consulting firms (Stacy Blackman and mbaMission), and have helped clients earn admission to HBS, GSB, Wharton, Booth, Ross, Kellogg, Fuqua, Columbia, Haas, Stern, Darden, Tuck, Johnson, Darden, INSEAD, and many others. I've collaborated with a range of candidates, and have had great success with those from more traditional backgrounds seeking a way to stand out among a sea of qualified peers, as well as those from non-traditional backgrounds who need guidance articulating how their talents and aspirations will fit into an MBA class. If you're looking for a seasoned, professional coach who's seen it all and can help guide you through the whole process, let's work together!
