About Timothy

I have helped many applicants successfully gain admission to top MBA programs both in the US and in Europe. I worked as an admissions fellow at Chicago Booth. In this role, I interviewed and reviewed the application details of almost 100 applicants across multiple quarters. I understand how to craft a dynamic story that will jump off the page for Ad Comms. Before pursuing an MBA, I started my career at Goldman Sachs, supporting prime brokerage clients with cash and security instruction and settlement. I am currently a project leader at Boston Consulting Group, advising clients mostly in the Gen AI, enterprise transformation, and org design practice areas. At BCG, I have supported clients with pricing strategy, org design, labor optimization, technology integration, and market analysis projects. I am a client service expert and can share valuable insight into how to successfully recruit and be successful at a top-tier investment bank or consulting firm. I earned a B.S. in Economics and in Finance from Utah State University and an MBA with high distinction from The University of Chicago Booth School of Business, where I graduated as an Amy and Richard F. Wallman Scholar.

Why do I coach?

I feel strongly that the application process can be a transformational step in the MBA journey. By truly understanding my MBA goals and what I could contribute to Chicago Booth, I was prepared to hit the ground running on day one of his MBA. I used a coach when studying for the GMAT and applying for business school and again when applying for consulting jobs. In both cases, the strategic support helped me gain confidence and a deep understanding of what it would take to be successful. When working with clients, my support extends beyond that of a consultant. I am empathetic to the difficult aspects of the process and can help applicants develop a personalized strategy across the entire application journey. I partner with each client as a mentor and friend to craft a personal brand and complete story to achieve success at the most competitive programs.
