Writing an essay is hard enough without the pressure of knowing your future depends in part on your essay’s success. The essays I’ve published took me months or even years to get just right. I’d love to use what I’ve learned to help you polish your college admissions and scholarship essays until they shine.

We will work together to get your college admissions and/or scholarship essay(s) in the best shape possible to improve your chances of college acceptance and scholarship awards. Please contact me with questions or to get started.
