InGenius Prep

My career in MBA Admissions spans more than 20 years and includes three outstanding institutions, NYU Stern School of Business, Stanford Graduate School of Business, and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. I was Assistant Director of Admissions and Alumni Affairs at Stanford, Director of Admissions and Financial Aid at NYU Stern, and Former Director of MBA Program for Executives at Wharton, in addition to serving as senior-level administrator helping establish Wharton’s campus in San Francisco.

I am fortunate to love what I do: guiding students through every stage of the business school admissions process – from candidacy building to application crafting to interview prep and beyond. In my free time you’ll find me on me cycling from one end of San Francisco to the other, trying to perfect something new in the kitchen or spending time with friends and family.
