I am a tenured English Professor with an MFA in Creative Writing from Sarah Lawrence College and a PhD in Literature and Writing from the University of Houston.
For the last twenty years, I have served as a grad school advisor and essay reviewer for med school applicants. In addition, I have extensive experience in the Medical Humanities, which combines my two careers -- I was a nurse before becoming an English professor.
Here’s a story about me: Just for kicks, a colleague encouraged me to take the Myers-Briggs inventory, a personality assessment to see how one’s perception and decision-making is defined among sixteen personality types. My result: the advocate. This one word sums up the kind of mentor, friend, and parent I am. I work with applicants like you because advocating, and editing, are at the core of who I am.
