Master College Admissions Counselor

Former Assistant Director of Admissions,
University of Chicago
Sarah Lawrence College

Victoria specializes in students interested in a wide range of schools, students seeking admission to highly selective schools, and fine arts students.

Victoria was previously an Assistant Director of Admissions at the University of Chicago, a top-ranked university in the US, as well as an Assistant Director of Admissions at Sarah Lawrence College.

Victoria holds a BA from the University of Chicago where she studied Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities and Theater and Performance Studies. She loves performing and has performed improv and sketch comedy in both Chicago and New York City.

Having read thousands of college admissions essays, Victoria knows that some of the best stories come from honest reflections and interesting experiences but that it can be hard for students to represent themselves as the wonderful and unique people they are! With her training as an improviser, she helps students to think outside of the box when writing about their lives and experiences.

Besides performing, Victoria enjoys running, reading a great book, listening to live music (especially rock), and introducing people to her two cool and feisty orange tabby cats.
