Bio:
A lead counselor with Moon Prep, Lindsey partners with her students to create memorable personal statements and well-rounded applications that stand out from the masses. When mentoring younger students, she enjoys helping others find confidence and pride in what sets them apart. She enjoys helping students build their resumes to further cultivate their individuality. Lindsey guides her students in planning and executing self-initiated passion projects — from brainstorming to breaking down the steps into manageable tasks to implementing the final product. As a journalist by training with years of experience in college advising and academic tutoring, she is passionate about guiding students through the narrative form of writing and compelling storytelling. Lindsey’s goal is to help them become not only stronger writers, but also stronger applicants for admission. Through her collaborative and tailored one-on-one guidance, Lindsey helps students apply and secure admission to their top-choice institutions, across traditional four-year colleges, medical schools, BS/MD programs, and Physician Assistant programs.

Lindsey has an extensive writing background and her work has appeared in Forbes, Inc, Yahoo Finance, Dwell, Trulia, Apple News, and many other publications. Drawing on her wealth of counseling and journalism experience, she has positioned herself as an invaluable resource for aspiring college students and physicians seeking to tell a personal story that inspires and convinces. Lindsey guides her students to represent their best possible selves before admission committees. Lindsey has interviewed countless admission officers and program directors at BS MD programs and medical schools to help her get insider knowledge on what top programs are looking for. She then uses this information to help create a well-balanced BS/MD and traditional college list for her students and other mentors.  As one of the first faces new students will see at Moon Prep, Lindsey onboards new students with a clear focus on their academic and professional goals and assigns them accordingly to the best possible coach. 

Prior to Moon Prep, Lindsey has worked as an academic tutor, including SAT and ACT test-taking preparation. Drawing on weekly and bi-weekly lesson plans, Lindsey worked with students ranging from elementary school to adults. Before that, she worked in branding and public relations, honing her skills in messaging and storytelling. These roles ultimately helped Lindsey sharpen her skills in messaging and storytelling for not only major brands, but also aspiring college students with a story to tell. Lindsey has also hosted dozens of webinars and college workshops to prepare students for the lengthy admissions process. Lindsey is an experienced writer, editor, and storyteller, including personal statements and essays, and she eagerly looks forward to the next batch of inspiring stories she gets to help shape for the next generation of leaders and healthcare professionals.
