Zach Wehrli
University of Chicago
Hey there! My name is Zach, and I'm a 2018 graduate of the University of Chicago. After graduating with honors in Political Science, I moved to Washington, DC to work as a Policy Associate at a nonprofit, where I worked on issues related to national security and foreign policy. Currently, I'm pursuing an MPP at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University; after graduation, I'll be joining the U.S. Foreign Service as a diplomat. I also have more than three years of professional experience in college admissions, including a fellowship in a top 10 undergraduate admissions office and two years as a part-time admissions consultant. Outside of school and work, I enjoy traveling, reading, and getting outdoors as much as possible!

Zoë Edington
University of California – Berkeley
Hi there! My name is Zoe (she/her/hers). In high school, I participated in dual enrollment, which eventually helped me graduate with two AA degrees and start college with junior status. I later went to UC Berkeley and graduated in 2018 with a BA in anthropology. As a college student I was unsure about the type of career that I wanted, so I joined a lot of student clubs, enrolled in random classes, and gained a variety of skills. I loved traveling so I studied abroad for a summer in Spain and a year in Australia, doing internships in both countries. I am passionate about educational equity and passing the torch to help future generations. I have worked with CollegeAdvisor.com for two years and I have advised clients who had a variety of academic interests. Some of the colleges that my previous clients have been accepted to include UC Berkeley, UCLA, and Duke Kunshan University.
