Michelle's MBA Qualifications
Open to working with clients outside the U.S.
Hey there! I'm a recent Stanford grad who got into both Stanford GSB and Harvard's 2+2 programs. Applying to these programs can be immensely stressful, and I've learned a lot along the way about how to effectively prepare and apply so there's no last minute worries. I'd love to help others reaching for these top programs on how to... - craft an awesome narrative - write meaningful essays that sound like YOU - test prep effectively for the GRE (in 3 months or less) - prep your recommenders - crush your interviews ...all WITHOUT crazy levels of stress. I've got templates, advice, and a network to lean on that'll make this process a breeze. I've been in your shoes a year ago, and I've got your back. Let's do this!
Michelle can help with:
Hey there! I'm an APM at Google, deferred admit to Harvard Business School and Stanford GSB, and recent Stanford grad. I've spent time as a PM in Big Tech and startups, and I worked in venture capital beforehand. I know firsthand what it feels like to not be "technical" enough and pivot from finance/consulting/business development roles to tech. My clients have secured PM internships in Big Tech and multiple startups, and analyst roles at leading VC funds. In the past, I've been an APM intern at Google, a Founding Product Manager at Harbor (a startup acquired by Citizen App), a PM at Stanford product studio, and an investor at Contrary Capital, GSV Ventures, and Pear VC. I've run multiple startup accelerators, and even founded one. I see how marrying entrepreneurial passion and understanding of the business ecosystem can make you a super strong, differentiated B school applicant. As your coach, I can help you: - Make a narrative that makes answering "What matters to you? Why this school?" a piece of cake - Craft a resume that showcases your strengths, and speak to what admissions really cares about - Prep your recommenders so your rec letters amplify your application - Quickly boost your GRE score (1-3 months!) - Write short answer questions that fill in the gaps of your application persona ...and more. I also see myself as your cheerleader. Applying's a really difficult, mental game and I've been in your shoes. Happy to be in your corner and keep you motivated. :)
Why do I coach?
I coach because I know how long and arduous recruiting and applying to grad school can be. By doing mock interviews, editing my resume a ton, cold emailing, reading lots of books, and re-crafting my narrative, I've worked hard to secure an internship and full-time APM role at Google (with acceptances to places like Microsoft, Atlassian, and more). This then empowered me to kick ass at grad school applications - and I got into Stanford GSB and Harvard 2+2! I've mentored multiple deferred applicants before, and I've come to Leland to officially launch my coaching after awesome feedback from my clients - and I can't wait to help more people breakthrough!
