i'm passionate about helping you

I know first-hand how hard it can be to navigate graduate school as a first-generation student of color. Because of this, I offer coaching sessions and workshops tailored to you as an individual, group, program, or center. I will help you identify clear goals and learn the steps to achieve them without burning yourself out.


Graduate School Academic Coaching

For over ten years, I have helped countless individuals apply, get into, and graduate from top master’s and PhD programs in humanities, social science, and STEM fields. I specialize in tailoring to the needs of low-income, first-generation, and students of color, which means that in addition to providing guidance on the app process, I also demystify graduate school. I believe that everyone should have access to the knowledge and resources necessary to get into a top program with full funding that will lead them to a career of their dreams. 

My coaching packages consist of the following kinds of support:

Graduate School Preparation Virtual Talks

I am available for virtual talks, workshops, panels, and plenary presentations organized by community organizations as well as university departments, centers, and groups who work with first-generation students of color. I am happy to discuss and tailor my talk or workshop on your specific group’s goals, needs, and outcomes. Schedule a consultation meeting to discuss any talk or workshop proposals.
