About Matt

I have successfully coached many applicants at various stages of the MBA admissions process. Additionally, I was a Second Year Coach during my time at Darden where I coached several students as they navigated the hyper-competitive summer internship process with in-depth resume reviews, story crafting, and case interview prep. My attention to detail, hands-on support, and problem-solving background helped students land coveted internships with MBB and Fortune 500 organizations. Before pursuing an MBA, I was a consultant for healthcare and federal clients providing support with project and program management, data analytics and visualization, and operations management. Post-MBA, I continued my career in consulting focused on business transformation initiatives for clients in the retail, utilities, and biotech industries. Currently, I work for a behavioral health organization leading strategic business transformation efforts across multiple departments. I earned a B.A. in History from the College of William and Mary an MS in Commerce (concentration in Marketing & Management) from UVA, and an MBA from the Darden School of Business at UVA.

Why do I coach?

I coach because I see first-hand the personal and professional growth and transformation that can happen with the right support and mentorship. The MBA application process can be grueling and challenging. Distilling years of personal and professional experiences into resume bullets, short answers, and interviews requires focus, attention to detail, and a specific understanding of how an MBA can help you achieve your short and long-term goals. As a coach, my objective is to not only support you through all parts of the process, but also to help you tell YOUR story in a way that balances authenticity with the elements required to stand out to an Admissions Committee. Having successfully navigated the process myself, I empathize with every step of the journey. My goal is to work "with" you, not "at" you to make sure that you have all of the support and guidance you need from start to finish. Let's work together to tell your story.
