A counselor with Moon Prep, Andrea guides her students through the entire admissions process, helping them improve their resumes, explore valuable research opportunities, and craft compelling personal statements that stand out at top-choice programs. As a coach, she is passionate about leveraging her admissions experience to help students apply to diverse programs across traditional four-year universities, medical-focus programs, and graduate fields of study. Andrea discovered her passion for working with students in higher education early in her career, and has spent the last 10+ years helping students navigate their paths into college, first year of medical school, and various fields in higher education.

Alongside her mentoring at Moon Prep, Andrea currently oversees the Career Development Program in addition to serving as a Course Director for a mid-sized community based medical school. In this role, she assists the admissions committee with application reviews and interviews; provides individualized academic and career advising and support to M1 through M4 medical students; aides students in navigating residency match and soap processes, and fosters mentorship opportunities through the AAMC Career in Medicine initiatives. With an inside perspective of university and medical school admissions, she is eager to help aspiring students find the best program fit for them, package a compelling application, and, for medical students, in particular, help them prepare for The Match and Residency.

Previously, Andrea served as an academic advisor at the University of Notre Dame and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where she engaged undergraduates on their educational plans and performance, the university experience, and academic policies. She also managed sophisticated student records and databases for the College of Health and Human Services, as well as designed and implemented various initiatives focused on new student orientation and academic retention of first-year,transfer, and pre-health students. Earlier in her career, she served as the Director of New Student Transition at Davenport University and an academic advisor at Michigan State University.
