University of Pennsylvania
(Online or In-Person)


A former first-generation college student who benefited greatly from a near full ride at the University of Pennsylvania, Jennifer is passionate about helping students navigate the college admissions process and fulfill their potential. Her two decades of admissions experience began while serving as an Admissions Officer at her alma mater before reading applications for the highly selective USC Bovard Scholars program. Having reviewed thousands of exceptional applications, Jennifer understands the necessity of creating a narrative that both distinguishes a candidate and resonates with each school’s institutional priorities. Through every step of the process, from course selection and creating a standardized testing plan to innovation projects and leadership positions, she helps students foster their individual growth and have an impact on their communities. She also loves working with students to craft authentic, purpose-driven essays that show colleges what they have to offer—and, of course, celebrating with them when they are accepted!

Jennifer’s background as an educator has been multifaceted, and she brings this breadth of experience to her work. As former Director of Tutoring at The Princeton Review of Southern Florida, where she taught SAT®, ACT, and LSAT at TPR and graded over 80,000 essays for their LiveGrader service, Jennifer gained unique insight into standardized test prep. She is a Founding Director of Bright Kids, a K-8 Test Prep and Admissions company based in NYC, and also holds her teaching certification in K-8 Special Ed through the Newark Teaching Fellowship. These well-rounded professional experiences as an educator enhance her work with students and have resulted in her annually supporting multiple students in gaining admissions to every Ivy + Top 20 school.

When not advising her students, you can find Jennifer top roping or bouldering at her local gym. She also enjoys her continued affiliation with CBO USC Bovard Scholars as their Lead Essay Editor, supporting underrepresented high schoolers in the college admissions process, and previously worked as a Curriculum Developer for their PreMed Academy, supporting underserved undergraduate students with medical school admissions.
