“I have a passion for working with students to craft genuine essays and consistent, on-message applications that will help them not only get into the school of their dreams but help them find a program that is truly an ideal fit. I believe in working collaboratively with students to help them realize their interests and goals as well as identify their unique strengths and experiences that set them apart.”
While in the PhD program, Stephanie worked as a teaching assistant for three years at the University of Texas. She primarily taught and advised freshmen as they navigated the transition into college. In recognition of her work, she was awarded the Department of Psychology Janet T. Spence Teaching Award for Excellence as a Teaching Assistant for the 2017-2018 year.
“Growing up in a low-income area as a first-generation college student, I saw firsthand how a lack of resources and opportunities can affect students as they try to prepare for college. I feel strongly that every student should have to have access to information and the necessary tools to succeed in order to allow their individual potential to flourish.”
Stephanie has been to 22 countries!
