Application Writing Coaching & Personal Consulting for all your high-stakes goals.
Whether you are a high school student looking at a direct path to an undergraduate degree, or someone leaving the workforce to begin (or continue) a college education, let my expertise of the college essay guide you to a more confident application.
Graduate school, as they say, is a whole new level. Whether you have been out of school for a while and are planning to return for a professional degree, or you are looking at staying in academia, I offer personal statement coaching for a wide variety of programs.
Why do I create? What am I trying to say in my art? Spending time getting to know yourself and your work can bring clarity to the written elements of your story. Artist statements curate your “story” while grant applications convince others of your potential and vision.
Jackie’s help and suggestions guided me in putting together brilliant applications. Applications I sent with confidence, confidence I never would have envisioned. Her advice and knowledge did wonders more than any book or website could hope... she molded a miserable time into an acceptance letter from my first-choice University.
My statement still feels like something I've written, but it represents me so much more clearly and positively than it did. I can't recommend this service highly enough.
I had almost resigned myself to that merely "decent" statement when I decided to reach out to Jackie. The in-depth feedback and edits I received reinvigorated an application process that can be so daunting and draining.
Beyond just critiquing the mechanics of my essay, Jackie pushed me to examine and state my objectives more clearly. As someone who knows how an admissions department works, she was able to offer very specific feedback. Jackie also communicated clearly about her timeline and gave her feedback very quickly, which I appreciated very much!
