I studied at Stanford University where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Urban Studies and a Master’s degree in Sociology. Since graduation, I have worked in New York at a talent agency perusing my love of theater, art, and performance. I have also traveled throughout Italy harvesting grapes on an organic vineyard. I have been passionate about education since high school and have taught science and math for five summers at Lick-Wilmerding Aim High, a summer enrichment program for underserved middle school students. In addition to Aim High, I taught English while studying abroad in Madrid, Spain, volunteered with a preschool reading program in East Palo Alto, and I am currently assisting a group of Aim High 8th graders with their independent high school application essays. I am especially passionate about preparing students for standardized tests and editing personal statement essays. Many students experience test anxiety and are unsure of how to present themselves in personal statements, making the application process stressful. For this reason, I enjoy helping students put their best foot forward in their personal statements and learn test-taking strategies so they may feel as confident as possible about their applications. In my spare time, I enjoy seeing theater in the Bay Area, painting, choreographing musicals at Stanford, and exploring San Francisco, the wonderful city where I grew up.
