For 17 years, I was the Director of Admissions at Yale Law School. As a senior member of the Admissions team, my duties included all aspects of admissions: management, planning, strategy, file-reading, and pre- and post-admission recruitment. My commitment to the Law School expressed itself first and foremost through a dedication to serving well all the people who encountered our office – whether applicant, pre-law advisor, admitted student, or faculty member. I particularly enjoyed talking with applicants about discerning what path was right for them.

Since then I have honed my skills as a writer and as an applicant by working as a grant-writer for the International Festival of Arts & Ideas. It helped me that I knew what it was like to be on the receiving end of an application! I look forward to using this knowledge and skill set to help set you off on a rewarding path for yourself.

Originally from Illinois, I have lived on the east coast since my college days in Minnesota, but love to travel, especially to see family and friends scattered across the continent and around the globe. To feed my soul, I am active as an amateur classical musician, as a lover of folk music, as a folk dancer and as a member of my faith community.
