Hello! My name is Natalie, and I can’t wait to start working with you! I graduated from the University of Chicago in 2020 with my BA in Comparative Human Development. While at UChicago, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Rome through the Gilman Scholarship, and this upcoming year I will be returning to Italy to teach English on a U.S. Fulbright scholarship! Over the last five years, I have worked in a variety of roles supporting students in the college application process: teaching a 6-week crash course in applying to college to rising seniors in a college-prep program; working in a Chicago high school as a College Advising Corps advisor; and, just this past summer, supporting a UChicago alumnus apply to medical school. Give my history, I have experience advising at all stages of the college application process, and I am particularly well-versed in essay-editing and navigating financial aid. My advising style is focused on building a college list around discovering your personal college “fit” (from academics to community to financial aid) and then bringing your individual story to life in each part of your application. Working together, I hope to answer your questions, create a game plan, and ultimately ease your stress as you move through this exciting process!
