Kristen was instrumental in preparing me for auditions and was extremely knowledgeable about many different schools and their respective qualities.

While reviewing my essays, Kristen is honest and gives great advice on how to capture my voice. Rather than thinking what an admission officer wants to read, Kristen works with you to find and exemplify what makes you unique.
