Colby College

I received my B.A. from Colby College in 2020 with a double major in Psychology and Education, and a minor in English. Currently, I am pursuing my Master's in Educational Policy Studies at Boston University. Upon graduating from Colby, I served for two years with College Advising Corps where I advised upperclassmen at Josiah Quincy Upper School to emphatic postsecondary success. While honing my advising techniques, I oversaw students' acceptances to an extensive list of elite colleges and universities, many of which were the first in JQUS' history. My work is driven by a fierce passion for guiding others to realize their fullest potential and the belief that the college admissions process can be an immeasurably valuable learning experience. With each advising relationship, I strive to not only help students gain admission to the schools of their dreams, but to cultivate the diligence, fidelity, and confidence to thrive in college and beyond.

Yale University

Hi! My name is Jesus and I graduated from Yale in 2020 where I majored in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. As a first-generation college student, I know the importance of college advising and have supported students from all walks of life as they applied to schools all across the country. I am excited to bring my years of expertise as a pre-med student interested in exploring the humanities and STEM fields through the liberal arts education at Yale as well as my years of experience advising students as they figure out what colleges they want to apply to, develop captivating essays, and determine what subjects they might be interested in exploring during college.
