What led you to IvyConnection?
As a mother, I was slowly getting into the field of freelance education consulting. But as fate would have it, I was introduced to IvyConnection. Hearing about the company’s amazing people, teamwork, and commitment to students made me determined to join their efforts. I find meaning in the relationships built with students and thoroughly enjoy helping them map out their stories. I’m looking forward to the rewards of assisting each student throughout the application process and seeing the results of all their hard work.

Who inspires you?
My family! My father and husband are my rock and strength; they always remind me to be levelheaded and patient. My daughter especially inspires me to be a better person in all aspects of my life.
