I'm a Columbia Law student and experienced teacher, tutor, and editor. At Columbia Law, I sit on the boards of the Student Public Interest Network, the LGBTQ students group, and the animal law group. I spent the summer after my first year working in Kampala, Uganda on human rights issues and helped a team of lawyers to repeal the oppressive Anti-Homosexuality Act. I am currently assisting lawyers in the U.S. with a death penalty case and am a member of the Journal of Gender and Law.
Prior to starting law school, I gained experience working with non-profits and on political campaigns. I earned my bachelor's degree in Public Policy from Stanford in 2011.

I enjoy the opportunity to work with clients as they apply to college and graduate school, by helping with both test prep and admissions essays. I approach my tutoring with an open mind and work with clients to develop a preparation strategy that works for them and support them as they execute it, making changes as necessary. I like to help clients discover strengths they already have and to tackle the challenges they are working to overcome. Students can count on me to be honest, realistic, and encouraging.
