An essay coach with Moon Prep, Chloe seeks a holistic understanding of her students to craft and perfect essays that reflect their stand-out qualities as institutional representations and future physicians. With a “whole applicant” approach in drafting the optimal essay, she strives to know the student personally, academically, and professionally. Chloe treasures this approach because a highly individualized essay highlighting many aspects of a student’s life is a proven method to stand out among large applicant pools. Forming the final essay is a team effort between the student and Chloe. She ensures ample opportunity to brainstorm themes, discuss draft feedback, and knit-pick details to provide the student feels fully satisfied and confident prior to application submission. As a medical mentor, Chloe considers herself an open-access resource for students striving for a path into medicine. She understands firsthand how overwhelming it can be to apply to medical schools, but she believes the right guidance and support can make the process less daunting and hopefully more enjoyable. From advising students on what classes may give them an advantage in medical school to recommending extracurricular activities and research opportunities for a stand-out application, Chloe loves to encourage and empower all students interested in attending medical school with all available resources (and the wisdom she gained from her own successful journey into medicine).
Alongside her mentoring at Moon Prep, Chloe is currently a third-year medical student at West Virginia University School of Medicine in Morgantown, West Virginia. Outside her studies, she is an active member of the academic community where she volunteers at MedCoach and MedStay, forming mentorship relationships with aspiring applicants, advising pre-medical students on the clinical space, and meeting remotely with prospective students one-on-one before their medical school interviews. Chloe has also volunteered at the Indiana University Student Foundation and Steering Committee, Amedisys Home Health, and the Ronald McDonald House at Riley Children’s Hospital through the Alpha Delta Pi Women’s Society. As an applicant just a few years prior, Chloe can recall the countless hours of effort she spent perfecting every part of her medical school applications. Although she certainly remembers moments of inevitable frustration, she remembers most of the critical element of sincere mentorship throughout the process. As a mentor, Chloe will send the elevator back down and work diligently with her students to ensure their needs are met throughout the application process in every possible way. She is very comfortable answering questions and addressing concerns about preparing applications or practicing for interviews. Chloe wants to ensure that students feel their best during all stages of the application process by being available for encouragement and advice whenever needed. Drawing on her experience and empathy, she will proudly fulfill the role of editor, cheerleader, counselor, and, most importantly, mentor for any student embarking on the long journey into medicine.
Prior to Moon Prep, Chloe gained healthcare experience working as an optometric technician with Brinegar Eye Care and as a technician intern with Eye Surgeons of Indiana. As a research editor under Dr. Alon Harris at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Eye Institute, she edited manuscripts before they went for publication. Because Chloe earned a minor in creative writing during her undergraduate education, she has a unique perspective on reaching an audience through crafting words. This is particularly advantageous in the context of essay writing and editing for medical school applications, as a fluid combination of academic achievement and personal life experiences must come through clearly and succinctly in the personal statement. Additionally, Chloe tutored undergraduate students in various levels of chemistry and worked as an undergraduate teaching assistant in organic chemistry. Through these experiences, Chloe can bring out personal qualities in ways that help students achieve their highest potential. She was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa Society in 2019.
