WHAT I DO
College admissions process can be overwhelming and stressful, but it doesn't have to be. I accomplish this by demystifying this process in a supportive environment. I inspire students to discover themselves through their unique stories. I guide students to find college options that meet their academic and financial needs. I coach them and challenge their growth so that they can be who they genuinely hope to be.
As the founder of Evergreen Educational Consulting LLC and an Independent Educational Consultant, I provide personalized guidance for college admissions. I am an experienced educator who has taught high school and college students, served on the scholarship committees, reviewed grant proposals, and assisted students with personal statements for college and medical school applications.
I am an Associate Member of Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA).
I received my B.S. in Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology and minor in Korean from UCLA. As a proud recipient of the UCLA Regents Scholarship, Alumni Scholarship, Undergraduate Research Scholarship and Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Society Scholarship, I was able to graduate from college debt-free. I also completed my Masters in Education from UCLA, and this was fully funded by the Graduate Opportunity Fellowship. I have a Ph.D. in Human Genetics from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
I began my career as a biology teacher at a Title I high school in Los Angeles High School District and then in Hacienda La Puente Unified School District. After receiving my PhD, I have devoted my career to teaching and have been lucky to live and teach at a variety of cities and institutions, including Towson University, Johns Hopkins University, University of San Francisco, and Northern Arizona University. I completed IECA’s Summer Training Institute in 2022.
When not working with students and families, I enjoy gardening, hiking and baking. But what I cherish the most is the opportunity to connect with the students and transforming their lives.
